So I’m due in about 5 weeks with a son and I’ve just now decided to start this christening romper for him: http://jaslamb.weebly.com/boys-christening-romper.html I would consider myself fairly experienced but I’m just not getting the first few lines of the directions because what is coming off my needles doesn’t look remotely correct.
For the pants it says to cast on 35 sts and then do this rib pattern:
row 1: (k1-b, p1) across
row 2: (k1, p1-b) across
Now when I’m reading that, the first thing I think is wrong is how does a 1x1 rib pattern fit into an odd number of stitches? Wouldn’t I end up doing something seed-stitch like? Then I thought k1-b and p1-b mean knit into the row below the active row right? How are you supposed to accomplish that off the cast on row, there’s no row below to knit or perl into. Maybe I’m missing something simple here, but if no one has any ideas I think I might just do a plain k1,p1 rib and I can’t see how the effects of such to the pattern would be bad.
Any help or thoughts appreciated, now I just gotta hope I can finish in time, lol.
