My name is Julie and I am new to knitting. Right now I am knitting an easy sweater pattern but have run into part of the pattern I don’t understand. I’m hoping someone can help me. There are actually 2 parts of the pattern I’m not sure about.
While knitting the left front of the pattern, the instructions read: *K1, P1, rep from * to last 3 sts, (I understand this part). The next instruction reads: K1, yfwd, sl1, yb, k1. Wouldn’t this require 4 stitch and not 3? I would knit a stitch, yfwd a stitch to make 2 stitches, slip 1 stitch, bring the yard to the back of my needle and knit the last stitch?
This next instruction I do not understand at all reads: Next row (WS): Patt to end, dec 1 st at end of row. 28 sts. What does it mean to Pattern to end?
Thanks in advance for any help given.
