This is my first post & I'm hoping someone can help a newbie. I'm making a newsboy hat and I'm confused about how to interpret these instructions, working in the round:
"Cast on 56 sts. Row 1: * K1, P1; rep from * across. Join to work in the rnd, taking care not to twist sts. Work ribbing pat in the rnd until approximately 1 3/4" from beg. K 1 rnd inc 16 sts evenly spaced - 72 sts. Work in pat:"
I understand casting on & the various abbreviations. However, is it talking about 1 or 2 rows? What do you do when you get 1 3/4" from the end? When are you increasing stitches? The pattern continues with "Rnd 1" is this different than Row 1?
This is supposed to be an "easy" pattern. Any help would be appreciated.
