Understand a pattern

by Jill

I’m trying to understand this pattern. I must just be being stupid because this shouldn’t be hard.

I’m starting a round with 56 stitches

Instructions say to *K1. Inc 1 st in next st. Rep from * to end of end. 84 sts.

Does that mean I’m knitting 1 then increasing a stitch then K1 , increase…. Repeating to the end? Then wouldn’t I end up with double the stitches? Not 84?

Hi Jill,

Yes, it should be 84. You only double 28 sts (1/2 of 56) and another 28 sts stay the same. So, you have 56 + 28 = 84.

Go ahead and do *k1, knit into front and back of the next sts, Then repeat from * again. You should have a set of 3 sts on each repeat.

Thanks for the question,
