So I thought it would be a good idea to finally try a Mystery Knit Along pattern. Bought the kit, waited with great enthusiasm, and finally received the yarn and pattern. Fast forward to today when I decided to sit down and start. For some reason I can’t understand the beginning of this pattern!
[B]Set up Row 1: SL1KW WYIF, PFB, P1
Set up Row 2: SL1KW WYIB, K1, KFB, K1
Set up Row 3: SL1KW WYIF, P2, PFB, P1
Row 1: SL1KW WYIB, K1, *SL1PW, K1, YO, PSSO. Repeat * to last 2 sts. KFB K1.
Row 2: SL1KW WYIF, Purl to last 2 sts, PFB, P1.
Repeat rows 1&2 until there are 28 sts on the needle.[/B]
So my issue is this… I do the three set up rows and end up with 6 sts total. Right? Then on to the “actual” Row 1 and I need 7 stitches to be on the needle? (also, the pattern notes that the YO is to be a double YO). I’m just not understanding how I’m supposed to go from Set up Row 3 to Row 1 if I don’t have enough stitches. And it doesn’t specify YIB or YIF for the slipped purlwise stitches in Row 1. Am I crazy? Am I overthinking? Am I doing something totally green that a professional will quickly correct? Yeah, probably…
