Pattern query!! Help please!

Postby Carron88 » Wed Mar 30, 2016 4:42 pm

Hello so I know basic knitting, purl, adding a stitch and wts but what I'm struggling with is some things like how would you do this instruction?

(K1, inc. in next stitch) 3 times, k1 - 10sts

To me it says knit 1 'stitch' then what...then what 3 times...

I gather that you have seven to start with? Knit one, knit into the front and back of the next one, repeat these two things three times, knit the last one. Thins increases your stitches to 10. There are other ways to increase, of course, but this is a simple one. hth
