What does "In next st" mean?

a row in my pattern says:

K2, *p5 [k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1] in next st; rep from * to last st, end k1

does this mean k2, then repeat [U]p5, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1[/U] until last stitch, then k1?

You’re doing all in the one stitch.

Knit, but don’t slide it off. Bring the yarn forward between the needles and knit again. Repeat all the knits and yo’s in that one stitch before you slide it off.

You’ll have 7 where you had 1.

It looks like you’ll be making a bobble of some sort.

Oooooohhh so it’s a method of increasing then?

Wow that explains soo much!!!

Because in this pattern there are 16 rows and I only increase in two of them and I decrease quite a lot in the next rows, and I was wondering how the heck that works without increasing more at the start :confused:

so I essentially do p5, then all that increasing, then p5… Until the end then?

That’s right - p5, then do all the increasing in the next (6th) stitch, then p5, increase in the next (12th) stitch, etc until you only have one stitch left
