i've been moving along on my first pattern, but i've come to a standstill again.. the goal is to make a stub, and the pattern says to:
(starting with a couple st st rows of 12 sts)
next row: K7, turn and work on these sts only.
next row: P3, turn and work on these sts only
next row: knit.
?? what exactly does "work on these sts only" mean? also, how do i transition from a row with 7 stitches to a row with 3 stitches without decreasing? what happens to the four remaining stitches on the needle?
