Hello! I’m new to the forum, so I hope I’m posting this in the right spot. I just started working on an advanced project, but the part that’s difficult for me isn’t the technique, but actually understanding the pattern. So far I think I’ve managed to figure it out, but now I’m completely stuck. It doesn’t make any sense at all to me… The numbers just don’t add up! So, I was wondering if anyone here can possibly make sense of this. It would be SUCH a relief if you could!

Use MC yarn and pick up 28 stitches knitwise along one selvedge, beginning at the tapered end. Continue working in rows as follows:

Row 1: P10, w&t.

Row 2: K6 [M1R, K1] 3 times, P1. (31 stitches)

Row 3: Sl1, P15, w&t.

…etc.

I’ve already picked up the stitches and done row 1, but I don’t know what to do after that.

Please help!
