No, this won’t be a written version of the Beatles song, even though I did sing it to myself when I wrote the title. ha.  I really need help on my newest endeavor, which I fear may have been a bit much for me.

My pattern says:  “…ending with a Right Side facing for the next row and increasing….”

then, it says “Row 1, P2, work row 1 of Double Waves Pattern….”  **NOTE, row 1 of the Double Waves Pattern says it should be the RS, row 2 would be WS, etc.

I did this before for the 4 rows that makes up the cable patterns (took me at least two hours) and  then I realized the pattern should end with a “RS facing for next row” which would not be right, right?

The row that I am look at is what I think is the RS row. The stitches are all on my left needle and the working yarn is at the first stitch, ready to start knitting.  If I increase on this row, then the next row will be a WS row and that DOESNT match the pattern, thats why I am confused here.

Is this explained properly? ugh.  If not, here is two pictures of the pattern notes.

    It seems to make sense to me. When it says RS facing, it means it is facing you and you are about to knit an odd numbered row (a RS row, 1 and 3). So you should have done your increases on a WS row (row 2) in your seed st, then proceed to the first row of the wave/O/Snake patterns all at once.

    Is that helpful?

      okay, so I read it as “with a RS row facing increase 14 stitches across THIS last row (90 stitches)” but meant after the increases I should see the RS facing me. AHA! wow! you are really great. thanks for your time!! Seriously the best!
