I’m fairly new to knitting and I recently started a scarf. I wanted to clarify part of the pattern to make sure I’m not misunderstanding. After 2 setup rows you end up with 73 stitches. Then the pattern reads as follows:
Row 1 (RS): k to M, m1r, SM, sl1yb, m1l, k to last 2 sts, k2tog (+1 st)
Row 2 (WS): sl1wyf, k to 1 st before M, p1, SM, k to last st, sl1wyf
Repeat Garter rows 1 & 2 until you have 30 sts on right side of marker when viewed on RS
I have a couple questions - first of all, what does the (+1 st) mean in Row 1? I tried searching the internet for it, but I can’t find anything.
Second - when she writes that you end up with 30 stitches on the right side of marker, does she mean 30 rows? Or does she mean 30 stitches on the needle? Thank you all so much!
