Knitting a scarf for hubby from pattern in a book. It starts with a foundation row (Row 1) that makes sense: K1 *K1 P1 repeat from * to end K2. Row two is K1, *K1 P1 repeat. So that's all okay.
However Row 3 is written as such:
K1 *K1 in st below, P1 repeat from * to end K1 in st below, K1
However on the adjacent page it says to purl the first stitch then K1 in st below.
On all the videos it says to purl the first stitch. Is this an error in the pattern or is the beginning K1 stitch a border stitch and the purl stitch before the K1b not essential since there is the Knit stitch before it?
Much thanks in advance!
