Need help with directions

Hi, I’m Shelly and I need help with directions. The directions say to k1,I get extra “loops” so I am obviously doing something wrong. Is there a correct way to do this? I got my pattern from:
freevintageknitting.com/shawls/country-club-shawl-pattern.html :knitting:

There are a lot of reasons why this might be happening. Check out this thread. http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32886
