Bar increases on Giselle

I have a question about the bar increases on the front edges on Giselle. The pattern mentions mirrored increases. On the Purl rows, the increases are P1f&b at the beginning of the row then P1b&f at the end. However the knit rows have K1f&b at both the beginning an end of the row. Should the knit bar increase be K1b&f at the end of the row to mirror the increase at the beginning?

I wondered about that too - this is the first time I've used bar or lift increases (and love them!) and followed the pattern exactly and the edges look just fine (to me!).

I have to agree, I'm doing it just as the pattern says and they look absolutely fine to me.

Yes, that's a typo. They should be mirrored, for sure.

That said, your crochet or knit trim will cover whatever you do, so don't lose any sleep over it :)
