I’m fairly new to knitting (about a year or so), and have undertaken a baby bonnet pattern for a grandchild-to-come. The instructions say to “place marker on last stitch” and I’m not sure what this means. I know about placing markers that are slipped throughout the pattern, but this sounds like I should attach a marker into a stitch that has been made. If this is correct, where should the marker be placed, onto the stitch that is on the needle, or onto the stitch just below the needle? And should the marker remain there, or be moved up as the rows are knit? As the pattern progresses, the instructions reference the “marked stitch” (to be knit or purled as necessary).
I hope this makes sense and someone can clarify this for me!
