I am working a “lace garter inset” pattern. It says
“Work 1 edge st in st st, work lace garter inset to last st, work 1 st in st st for edge stitch”
The first 5 rows of the pattern require straight knitting. Does this mean that I still knit 1 stitch on each end for the right side and purl 1 stitch for the wrong side even though I am knitting all these stitches?
I would be so grateful for some insight.
