I just want to add more comment on this question.

Every time you see the word repeat from *, you have to look at what comes after the * then you will follow that instruction. For example, you mentioned " K1,* yfwd,K35, rep from* to end". In this example, you will do, K1, then yfwd, k35, and then keep repeating yfwd and k35 over and over again until the end.

When your needles are too full and hard to manage sts, you can transfer them to circular needle that is long enough to hold them. Do this at the end of the row will make it easier.

Here is a vide I just made to explain the *yfwd, k1; rep to end of row

Hi Marie,

You can do K1,*yfwd (yarn forward), K1, rep from* to end as follows;

K1, bring yarn in front of work and knit a stitch with yarn over needle. Next, you will have to repeat the " yfwd,k1" again and again until you complete the row. The asterisk (*) symbol indicates the begining of a repeat pattern.

I would make a video for you if I was home but I'm currently traveling and I don't have equipment and supply with me. Let me know if you're still not quite sure how to do this and I will do a viedo for you when I get back home.

Have a great day!
