Ladies, I'm about to lose my mind. Can you help?
Here's how the pattern for the sleeves on a baby sweater reads:
Cast on 32 sts. Work same as body rib for 1.5". OK fine.
Change to stockinette, work for 2 rows RS row. Still OK.
Begin sleeve shaping: Inc 1 st on each side every 2nd row 1X,
then every 4th row 8X. Cont in pat st until piece meas 7 inches. Bind off at 50 sts.
So when I got to the 2nd row I inc 1 st at the beginning and at the end and did the same thing for rows 6, 10, 14, 18, 22, 26, 30
When I got to the 4th row I inc 2 at the beginning and at the end and did the same thing for rows 4,8,12,16,20,24,28,32.
The bind off winds up at 100 stitches!!! the sleeve looks ridiculous!
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG????? I know it has to do with the increases but I don't know what???? H E L P. Thank you.
