I'm a new knitter, so this might be completely obvious... But I don't understand a pattern chart. I'm trying to knit a pattern on Ravelry (I can't link it here, but it's called the "scalloped table runner"):
It says: Row 1 (WS): k3, etc. Now that's right so far, except that on the chart (which is on the next page), the first 3 stitches are marked with a plain square, which -- according to the description -- should mean "k on RS, p on WS".
So, I thought that "p on WS" means that it should be purled in every odd row (including the 1st). Thus, should I knit, or purl the first 3 stitches in the 1st row? (And this is my problem with the whole chart, I don't know what to do in the odd rows, since the detailed description and the chart seems to conflict.)
Anyone has any ideas about this?
Thank you very much.
