what to do with the marker
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Lisa,

Yes, I see that in row 3 as well.
The stitch marker #2 is on the center stitch and each time you make a new k3tog, you move that marker onto the center stitch. You'll alway k3tog a stitch before the marker, the marked stitch and the stitch after the marked stitch. So, I would use a marker that can be opened and closed like a safety pin.

I hope this makes sense. Thanks for the question and visit.
