How do I knit a stitch, then a purl stitch, then repeat it again on the same row? I am trying to make a Harry Potter scarf for a friend and the instruction read: 1 knit, 1 purl - repeat until the end of the needle (it must end in a knit stitch); turn around and knit the same - 1 knit, 1 purl. . Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, what does Always slip the 1st stitch in a row off, purl-wise, and knit the last stitch mean?
