I'm working on the 2nd number in the parentheses so it's 0, 10, 3. My question is what do I do with the first number which is 0 do I go down every 3rd row 6 times without increasing and then start with every 4th row increasing 10 times? Also I have another question. If a pattern gives you the largest size as a size large and you want to go up a size how much more do you cast on per size you want to go up? Please help me so I may continue this pattern. It seems like I'm always asking for help on here and everyone is such a big help. Thank you.

So knit 5 rows, then switch to stockinette and increase every 4th rows 10 times. Period. You don't do the every 5th row 3 times, because if you're making the middle size, there's a 0 on the 5th row instructions. Increase on the 4th row of stockinette (start it on the purl side so your incs are on the knit rows), then row 8, 12, 16, etc... To go up a size larger than is printed, look at how many sts difference is given for sizes. Uually it's 4, 6, or 8 or something between the sizes. To go up one size, CO that many more stitches for the fronts, back and sleeves. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

I misread the every 5th row instructions and thought that was for a different size. __________________ sue- knitting heretic
