I am knitting a preemie jacket (looks like a sweater) that is worked side-to-side in one piece. I casted on 38 stitches and knit 5 rows. The next instruction is
**1st row(RS) K25. Turn. Leave remaining 13 stitches unworked.
2nd row – K25
3rd and 4th rows – Knit to end of row.**
Repeat last 4 rows until longer edge (bottom) from beginning measures 41/2” ending with a 3rd row. Place marker at beginning of last row.
The next instruction is for the sleeve.
The instructions don’t say to put the 13 unworked stitches on a holder and it doesn’t make sense to me to knit row 2 then on row 3 to include the 13 unworked stitches. Am I reading this correctly? I also don’t understand what ‘place marker at beginning of last row’ means. How do I place a marker at the beginning of a row? Thanks, Nancy
