I'm trying to knit this scarf http://www.kidsknits.com/free/cherryleaf.htm and the chart seems simple enough to follow. The only thing I don't get is, for example, row 1. When I finish row 1, I still have a bunch of extra stitches left. Do I repeat row one, or do I finish the extra stitches by moving on to the 2nd row?
Also, I know you're supposed to read these things right to left, but do I start from where it says stitch 1 (on the left) or read it how it's supposed to be read?
I hope all of that made sense. :-/
