Stuck.
I'm stuck, I'm not sure what my pattern is telling me to do. I'm making a shrug. This is what it says:

Shape sides
Inc and work into patt one st at each end of the next row and 23 foll alt rows, working first and last 6 sts in panel B, the next 1 sts at each side in reverse st st, the next 16 sts at each side in panel A and the final 1 sts at each side in rev St st. 162 sts. Work 1 row, so ending with a WS row.

Inc a st at the beg and end of the next row and every other row after that for a total of 24 inc rows. You'll have to work the new sts into the stitch pattern as you go.

The first 6 sts are done in the Panel B pattern, the next st is purl on the RS/K on the WS; then you work 16 sts in panel A stitch pattern, and 1 st as p RS/k WS then the last 6 sts in panel B pattern again. After you've done 24 inc rows total, do another WS row, then you'll go on to whatever they say to do next.

Oh my, I'm still sort of lost. Maybe this pattern is a little too difficult for me, I'm still a beginner. I'm sure I could actually knit the garment, it's just that the pattern is so confusing. Ho hum.

Just take it one step at a time and you'll be okay. It may help to write things out like I did above. You have panel A in the middle with a purl st on either side of it, then panel B on the outside edges, like this -

bbbbbb P aaaa (16 sts)aaaaa P bbbbbb

On the inc rows panel B will have new sts added to the beg of the one on the R and one at the end of the one on the L. These new sts get added into the pattern. If you write out a couple of rows for panel B I could show you how you would knit it.

I understand the panels but all the abbreviations and such make it hard for me to follow. It's a Debbie Bliss pattern and I don't think I'm ready. I don't know. I've never knitted a sweater before, only scarfs and dishcloths.

Curious what pattern this is. If you have a link that would be helpful.

You can type out a few rows and we can help you with the abbreviations. You can also look up the terms on the Glossary page and many of them have videos as well as an explanation.

One more question about this.. How do I add 2 stitches to each row, what increase stitch would I use? And would I be making them at the very beginning, like make the first and last stitch an increase?

Yes, it would probably do an inc at the beg and end of the row. But if we could look at the pattern through a link, then we'd know for sure.
