I agree with what crycket said. Totally.
Now comes my question, though:
and 6 foll 6th rows.
I assume the minimum of stitches is 1 to begin with (I should be right about this).
Now I increase on each end of each row, so I have 1 new + 1 + 1new = 3 stitches. This is row 1 of the increases.
then in row 7 I do this again:
row 7: 1 new + 3 + 1 new = 5
if I continue like this, it will be
row 13: 1+5+1=7
row 19: 1+7+1=9
row 25: 1+9+1=11
row 31: 1+11+1=13
row 36: 1+13+1=15
row 42: 1+15+1=17
In my eyes this instuction should say: Increase in that row 1, then do that 6 more times, doing it every 6 rows. so in row 7, 13, 19, 25, 31, 36 and 42.
As you see my math above: you must have had more stitches that just one (oh, who would have thought that :D)
So my math is:
before you start your first increase row, you have 22 stitches. Then you add 7 times 2 (14 stitches) and end up with 36 stitches.
Are you happy with this last part? Did you count 22 stitches before? If it confuses you: skip the math part and read again
