Egahds, I cannot figure this out.

I'm trying to design a top down raglan sweater with the first few inches of of the collar in daisy stitch. Daisy stitch is as follows:

on multiples of 4, plus 1

row 1 and 3 (rs): K all stitches
row 2 (ws): K1 [p3tog, but do not let stitches drop of left needle, yo, and p same 3 stitches tog, k1] to end
row 4 (ws): K1, p1, K1, [p3tog, but do not let stitches drop of left needle, yo, and p same 3 stitches tog, k1] to last 2 stitches, p1, k1

it creates a flowerish looking stitch in diagonal rows.

What would be a good way to increase for the ragla shaping without disrupting the pattern too much? I've tried a couple of different increasing patterns and nothing seems to keep the daisy pattern.

it's probably best to increase on the k rows in between the pattern repeats, but try not to incorporate the pattern until you have increased enough to begin a new repeat.   the increase will be a little more obvious, but that way, the pattern won't get disrupted.
