I'm new to this site and a newby to knitting. Well, I've done a few simple things.
Re: child's poncho
Here is what the pattern says to do: (I have CO of 42 st. )
Next row (RS): *(K1, M1) rep from * across (54, (63, 72). Change to larger 24" circ ndls, Beg with P row, work St st for 5 rows.
The size that I am doing would correlate to the 63 figure. I don't get what they are trying to tell me inorder to go from 42-63 sts. If I K1, M1 all the across it actually doubles the # of sts. Do I K1, M1 until I have 63 sts? What do I do with the remaining 21 sts? Finish the row off with just K?
