I’m looking at a pattern for the Hemlock Ring blanket by Jared Flood (it can be found on Ravelry). I understand it except until it gets to the 14th round. I’m pretty new to knitting, so I’m confused about some of the terms. What does it mean by working 9 st in the next yo? I’ve highlighted this section in red. Any help you can provide would be great. Possibly point me to some videos?
Here are the first lines of the pattern:
NOTE: O = yarnover sl 1 = slip 1 st as to knit psso = pass slipped st over st just worked
Use the Emily Ocker cast on for circular knitting – or preferred method. Starting at the center,
cast on 8 sts. Divide the sts on 3 needles and join, being careful not to twist sts.
1st and 2nd rnds: Knit around.
3rd rnd: (O, k 1) 8 times.
4th, 5th and 6th rnds: Knit around.
7th rnd: (O, k 1) 16 times
8th to 12th rnds incl: Knit around.
13th rnd: * K 2 tog, thread over twice, ssk Repeat from * around.
[COLOR=“Red”]14th rnd: K 1, allow 1st O to slip off left-hand needle, work 9 sts in next O – to work 9 sts in 1,
(k 1, p 1) 4 times; k 1,-- * k 2, drop 1 O, work 9 sts in next O. Repeat from * around, ending with
k 1 (88 sts).[/COLOR]
15th to 24th rnds incl: Knit around.
25th rnd: (O, k 11) 8 times.
