my pattern reads cast on 1 st
next row:K1,p1,k1 all in the same st-3 sts
Begin Ridge Pattern
I am confused about the first couple of rows .
How do you do that? I am sure I will be ok after that

You’re just doing the k1, p1, k1 all in that one cast on stitch. After you knit a stitch bring the yarn forward under the right needle and purl the stitch, then bring the yarn back under the right needle and knit in that stitch. I’ll see if I can find a video, but do give it a try. :wink:
