Hi, I’m having trouble reading a pattern - it’s a Wrap/shawl. The pattern reads:
Directions for Scarf given first, followed by Wrap in ().
CO 6 (7) sts.
First Half, Inc Rows:
Row 1: Purl
Row 2: K1, Knit in front and back of next st (inc 1), pm,
What I don’t understand is the K4 (5)-7(8)sts piece. Should I knit 5 for the shawl? What is the 7(8) sts mean.
I’m confused. If anyone can help I would appreciate it very much.
