The dress has a Mock Cable Pattern worked in 27-st panel at center front. It is a Top Down Pattern. After working 9" from the underarm I will be at a point where I have 160 sts. The instructions are as follows:
Next Rnd: Work MCP across entire rnd
Cont as est, working MCP over all sts, until dress measure 16" from underarm.
Work MCP over center 27 sts, K11,PM, (left front), K15,PM (left side), K15, PM (left back), K51, PM (right back), K15,PM (right side), K15,PM (right front), knit to end.
Cont working the center cable pattern all the way to hem.
Inc Rnd:Work to left back marker, sl marker, M1, work to right back marker, M1, sl marker, knit to end
Next Rnd: Work even
Rep the last 2 rnds 3 times more - 168 (178) st
The above is where I believe I need to inc my increase to the next size up, then continue in the larger size for the rest of the skirt, but I'm not really sure.
Again, I would very much appreciate any help.
