confused about foundation row
I am new to KH and fairly new to knitting. Currently working on a blanket for a friend of mine who is getting married. The very first line in the instructions have me stumped.
After casting on 131 stitches, it says to K5 rows. Foundation row (wrong side): K5, P1, etc.
Am I supposed to knit 5 rows, then begin the instructions for the Foundation row? I thought the cast on row is the foundation row.
Thanks thanks thanks!
