I’m a complete beginner. I’ve completed one dishcloth that is the basic pattern most people use that starts with four cast on’s and includes a row of eyelets around the borders of the cloth.
I am now trying to do one from the beginning knit booklet I have but the instructions are confusing me because it says to only cast on 1 stitch, but then the first row has a knit, an increase, an a knit, so it seems like I would need two stitches cast one. There is just something about I am missing or not understanding. Any help would be appreciated.
Cast on 1 st.
1st Row: (RS), (K1, yfwd,K1) all in st. 3 sts.
I’m pretty sure the 1st row is saying to knit one stitch, yarn over for an increase, then knit another stitch, all in stockinette stitch for a total of 3 stitches on the needle at the end. If that’s is the correct interpretation, than I’m confused by the casting on of only one stitch. It seems I would need to have two casts on to do a first row like that. What am I missing?
