help with reading the pattern
I'm working on making the sleeves of a baby sweater and need a little help. The part I don't really know how to do is "increase 1 st at both ends of every 7th row 6 times." Thanks!

You should increase one stitch at the beginning and one stitch at the end of each row every 7th row 6 times. So you should do this on rows 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, and 42.

Be advised, some of your incs will be on RS, some on WS, so do your incs accordingly (whatever the st pattern is). Also, do the incs 2-3 sts in from the edge as doing them on the edge st may interfere with your ability to seam and they also look better done farther in.

One more thing... as Knitlee said you'll increase on row 7, 14, etc. but that's counting from the first inc row, not the beginning of the pattern.

suzeeq..Interesting as I would have done my first increase on row 7 (from beg of pattern).

I also agree that inc a couple of stitches in from edge generally looks way better for various reasons.

It depends on where the first increase row is - if it's on the first row, then every 7th row would be 8, 15, 22, etc. If it's after you knit for an inch or so, you do the 1st inc row, then every 7th row after that one. Don't forget the very first inc row - it could be anywhere!

Don't forget
Most important is to WRITE it DOWN as you do the rows. I have to or I will get so lost in a pattern.
