I’m taking on my first clothing item. It’s a classic baby cardigan. (Stockinette stitch body and sleeves, with k1, p1 rib at neck, wrists and around the bottom of the sweater.)
I’ve just started it and I’m working on the back. The pattern says:
Cast on 61 stitches. Work in k1, p1 rib for 1 inch, ending with a wrong-side row and at the same time, increasing 4 stitches evenly across last row; 65 stitches. (Then it goes on to begin the stockinette stitch.)
Okay, so I get how to do the k1, p1 rib. But when I end with a wrong-side row, I’m confused about how to do the increases. :?? Do I do this within the last row of k1, p1 rib (I guess it would be p1, k1 since I’d be on the wrong side)? Is the increase considered a knit or a purl stitch? Or do I purl that entire row with the increases? The pattern abbreviations say Make 1 (M1): Make a loop cast-on onto right-hand needle to increase 1 stitch. This doesn’t sound like what I watched in Amy’s M1 video.
Thanks for any help and suggestions! This has me confused.
