Knitting a scarf for hubby from pattern in a book. It starts with a foundation row (Row 1) that makes sense: K1 *K1 P1 repeat from * to end K2. Row two is K1, *K1 P1 repeat. So that’s all okay.
However Row 3 is written as such:
K1 *K1 in st below, P1 repeat from * to end K1 in st below, K1
However on the adjacent page it says to [I]purl the first stitch[/I] then K1 in st below.
On all the videos it says to purl the first stitch. Is this an error in the pattern or is the beginning K1 stitch a border stitch and the purl stitch before the K1b not essential since there is the Knit stitch before it?
Much thanks in advance!
