More cryptic pattern bits! Please help!
Well from the last piece of help I got here I managed to finish the back panel of the cable vest I'm working on.

I'm starting the front, finished 12 rows of k1p1 rib and am attempting the final row with the smaller needles which sets up the pattern.

(The cabling pattern is p5, (k1tbs, p2, k8, p2) 9 times, then p5 again to make nine 8-stitch wide cables with 5 stitch borders in between each (with a 'popped out' line down the middle thanks to the K1tbs bit) and 5 stst either side near the seams. So it's something like this:

seam PPPPP KTBS PP KKKKKKKK PP KTBS PP KKKKKKKK PP KTBS PP KKKKKKKK ..... etc KTBS PPPPP seam


Phew.

I currently have 99 sts, as per pattern, and need to end up with 128.

The row I'm confused on is instructed thus:

Inc into first st, rib 4 sts, (inc into next st, rib 3 sts, inc into next st, rib 3 sts, inc into next stitch, rib one st) 9 times, rib 3 sts, inc into last st.

You should have 128 sts. Change to bigger pins and work in ptn.



So, does 'inc into first st' mean I knit a stitch, then increase? Or is it an increase I'm not familiar with? If I simply increase when it says 'inc into first st' I don't end up with enough stitches by the end of it. If I DO knit 1 then increase, I end up with 5 too many stitches.

*Scratches head* I hope I explained that well enough. Thanks in advance!

Inc in or into a stitch is a kfb increase, though you could do k1 then a m1. But I think kfb is what is meant.

Sounds like kfb to me as well. So you take that said stitch and knit into it and without dropping off, you knit into the back loop of it. Then you have increased into that stitch.

That's the way I understand it.

Ahhh, yes, good! It's that term that confused me... thankyou so much (again) suzeeq and blueygh2! I think my shoddy maths probably didn't help much either, hohoho.

Vest, here I come!
