"Move the last sts as the 1st st"
 
What does this mean?

Move the last stitch as the first stitches? Can you link to the pattern or give us a row or two that uses this direction?

I'm knitting a cap and have done 39 rows in various K2P2 and plain K combinations. Now, before going on the the next row and decreasing, the instructions say, Move the last stitches as the first stitch. I don't understand what they want me to do.

I don't either. What's the name of the pattern?

It's just a pattern I picked up called Flower Cap. I've done 41 rows of the pattern, now that sentence appears, and then I will begin decreasing. After 9 rows of decreasing, that statement appears again, then 6 final rows of pattern to finish the cap.

What did it tell you to do with the first stitch? "Move the last sts as the 1st st" is exactly as the pattern has it? Is there a note somewhere in the pattern explaining it?

Is this the hat? Yes, what did you do with the 'first stitch'?

"Move the last sts as the 1st st" is exactly what the pattern states. There is no explanation anywhere regarding this. The pattern begins: CO 88 sts, join into circle. Row 1-4: (K2, P2) repeat till the end. Rows 5-6: Knit etc.....

No, this is not the pattern. See my other reply for how the pattern begins. Sure hope someone can help.

Can you link to the pattern (if it's online) or tell us what book it's in?

That will help us answer your question.

Thanks!

Meanwhile, would it make sense to move your end-of-round marker so that your last stitch is now the first stitch?
