Pattern Help Please

Dear All,

I need some help deciphering the meaning of the following instructions for my blanket. l am getting ready to begin a floral pattern.

Row 9: P12 *(k1, yo) 3 times and k1 all in next st, p11; rep from *to last st, pl–18 sts in each rep.

Row 10: k12, *p7, k11; rep from * to last st, k1

In Row 9, what does “and k1 all in next st” mean?

Thank you.

It wants you to do everything between the *s in the next stitch - k1, yo, k1, yo k1,yo,k1. You’re increasing the 1 stitch into 7.

Now you’re thinking ‘how do I do all THAT in 1 sitch??’ – well, k1 but don’t drop the stitch off the left needle, yo and k1 again but don’t drop the stitch off the left needle, yo and k1 again but…you guessed it, don’t drop the stitch off the left needle and k1, yo and then the last k1. Now you can drop the stitch off the left needle.

Since row 10 has you purling those stitches, I’m guessing row 11 or 12 will somehow have you drecrease these 7 stitches back to 1 stitch.
