Newbie lost by the directions

I’ve only just begun knitting so this is confusing to me. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be for ever in your debt.

Cast on one stitch.

Row 1: knit into the front and the back of the stitch. There are now 2 stitches

Row 2: knit into the front and the back of the first stitch, knit the remaining stitches.

Repeat Row 2 until there are 14 stitches on the needle.
Knit untill 48"
Decrease row:
Knit 2 stitches together.
knit the remaining stitches
Repeat decrease row untill 1 stitch remains.
Bind off 1 stitch.

What confuses me is the knitting both the front and back of the stitch.

Thanks for the help.

There is a video for that here:
It’s on the right side of the page a ways down. That’ll show you better than I can tell you. (I hope)

Thanks that helps. If I had realized it was increasing I might Have figured it out. The videos on this site have taught me everything I know.


You are sure welcome! Happy knitting!
