I am so confused! The following is the beginning of the pattern and where I am confused.
Row 1: Knit to last st, M1.
Repeat row 1 until there are 30 sts on needle.
Knit next 5 rows in garter stitch.
Row 2: Knit to last 2 sts, K2tog.
Repeat row 2 until there are 20 sts on needle. Do not turn.
Pick up 25 sts along rounded end,
20 sts along cast on edge,
and 25 sts along rounded end. Place a marker.
Join in the round and knit one round to marker. (90 sts)
Are there actually 15 rows between Row 1 and Row 2? and then between Row 2 and picking up stitches are there actually 10 rows?
And lastly, I do not understand where I am picking up stitches- Along the side?
Thank you in advance for any help!
