Warm hands, warm feet

That should be the new motto for knitters. Mittens and socks for little ones are fairly quick projects, and since little ones grow, mittens and socks are in frequent demand.

Pattern: Basic Mitten Pattern, by Ann Budd
Yarn: Cascade 220, colorway 9478 (I'm on a fiber diet, so I stole the yarn from a UFO)
Needles: US7
Modifications: None

Question: When a pattern says to do something like "increase every x rows until stitch count reaches y", what do you do when you reach the stitch count? Do you knit the extra rows before continuing or do you just carry on with the next instruction? Inquiring minds want to know.

I don't understand your question. What extra rows?

I was just thinking I needed to knit up some mittens.

Once I've reached the required number of rows, I go on to the next instruction. If you are suppose to knot more rows after reaching the number, the pattern will say so.

You know, I don't know if it's a warm weather Californian thing, but I have never knit actual mittens. I always knit fingerless mitts. Those are very nice and making me think maybe I need to give the classic mitten pattern a spin, or knit rather ;)

I too, move on to the next instruction.
