I'm making this hat - - YES, YES I'm a glutton for punishment! Anyway... I'm stuck on some instructions. The pattern is a downloadable pdf so I'll type in the instructions I'm having trouble with:
...work the increase as follows: Next rnd: *[K1,M1] twice, [K2, M1] 3 times, place stitch marker; rpt from * to end [130 sts] (there will be 13 sts between each stitch marker)
Here's what I don't understand. It says there should be 13 sts between each stitch marker, but when I total all the K's and M1's and their repeats, I get 18 sts between markers! ?? Right? If you're K1, M1 - that's THREE STS you end up with, right? You've got the K1, and then the M1 makes another TWO.
Am I getting something wrong here? 'Cause reading those instructions, I would knit one, make one, repeat, then knit 2, make one, and repeat that step three times. RIGHT?? 18 sts, right? Why does she say 13?? :shrug:
