Q: I am confused at how to “maintain 2x2 ribbing between the markers” as it says in the pattern. If I increase on either side of a section between the markers how can it remain 2x2 knitting without the stitches getting off sync?
A: Try to think of the stitches between each of the markers as their own distinct sections. You must maintain the ribbing pattern in each of the sections independently. The sections at the beginning and end are easy because you aren't increasing there at all. You are only increasing at the edges of the center section. Every time you add a stitch to the beginning of this section, the starting point of your 2x2 ribbing pattern will need to be adjusted to match the rest of the section. The pattern will appear 'out of sync' at first, but after you have finished all the increase rows you will see that you have added enough stitches to make the rib patterns in all sections align perfectly.
