i’ve reached a point in a pattern i am working and am stuck…
It is a pattern in the round and the part i’m confused about is increasing the stiches on the 3rd needle. Here is what the pattern says:
Rnd 1, needle 3: p2,k1,pm,m1,pm, cont pattern as est
–i got this part, puting the two place markers in place
Rnd2, needle 3: sm,m1,k1,m1,sm, cont patter as est
–this is where i start getting confused. sm is “slip marker” - what does this mean? then:
Cont to work by k into the back and front of the first and last sts between the markers on each run to 13 sts between markers
–now i’m totally lost. Can someone please shed some light on this???
