Knit 1 - 19 stitches?

Does this mean I can CHOOSE how many stitches to knit?? That sounds wrong.

The directions on the pattern say:

Row 2: K1, M1, K to marker, M1, slip marker, K1, SM, M1, K to last stitch, M1, K 1 - 19 sts

Now everything else makes perfect sense… but knit 1 TO 19 stitches?? Huh? Anybody know what this means? It sounds like it’s telling me to knit anywhere between 1 and 19 stitches, like I’m supposed to choose. What am I reading wrong?


how many stitches are on the needle from Row 1?

It means k1 (the final stitch) and that you should have 19 stitches on your needle at this point.

oh well never mind…that makes perfect sense…lol

carry on! :wink: :rofling:

Oh my goodness!!! smacks self in forehead

Ok, now I think it’s time for my first coffee of the day… since my brain is obviously not working properly!! LOL How embarassing!!! :rofling:

Did you read this thread? We all do it!!

I did have to chuckle as I read your post. :wink:

Don’t be embarrassed! Knitting is a like a whole new language and we all had to learn it! I’m STILL learning! :lol:

Oh I’m so silly! I’ve seen that so many times (how many stitches should be on your needle at the end of a row) and always knew what it meant… but I guess today I just — I dunno. LOL

I blame it on the lack of coffee and maybe the new glasses… :roflhard:

LOL Ingrid. Yes, I do remember reading that thread of yours now. Hehehe… Ok, I don’t feel quite as bad now. :rofling:
