Need help with shawl directions
I picked up a free knitting pattern at Joann fabrics for a knit shawl. I don't know how to translate the pattern! Please help!
Cast on 4 sts (no RS or WS)
1st row: K3. yo. K1. 5 sts
2nd row: K1. P1. yo. K3. 6 sts
I don't understand if you are only casting on 4 sts, what does the 5 sts or the 6 sts, etc. mean??? Does it mean I am casting on an additional 5 stitches???
I understand knit, purl, yarn over.
