Hi everyone! I want to knit a scarf but the pattern puzzles me. After an initial increase from 3 sts to a total of 13 sts I’m to go to a pattern chart where row 1 first shows 3 boxes with knit-purl-knit. After that there is a gap of the equivalent of 5 boxes, then there is a pattern bit, followed by the empty space again, and 3 boxes at the end. What do I do with the gap? And the end bits? Row 1 has 15 sts total, the middle bit only 9… I don’t get it…

This is my first post here so I’m not allowed to post a link, but the pattern is called Juno Regina, and can be found on Knitty.

Grateful for help
