Thank you for responding. I’m making an Aran Afghan Throw blanket, which Is done in squares. I believe you are correct. After further investigation I found that K1, P1, K1 means you should K1, but keep the original stitch on your left needle, and then do the same for the P1 and K1, resulting in an increased number of stitches. Then when you P3 together, it works out. When I tried it, I had the right number of stitches on my needle. A little confusing for a newbie, and I’m only on Row 2 .
