Here's a portion of the pattern I'm wanting to knit:
Cast on 15 stitches.
Slip first st. as if to k, k across row. Repeat this row until 5 " from beg.
Shaping: Row # 1: slip first st. as if to k, increase by knitting in front and back of next "2" sts, k across to last 3 sts, increase as before in next 2 sts, k 1.
Row # 2: Slip first st. as if to k , k across row.
I'm unclear what it means by slip first stitch as if to knit. So, does that mean I don't knit it? Picture me confused. :??
