Here's the real deal.....

Little Mermaid Strapless Top

(THIS IS THE VERY FIRST LINE OF THE PATTERN FROM THE PATTERN BOOK.)

KNIT 1, PURL 1
Row 1 *Knit 1, purl 1, repeat from * to the end.

Row 2 Knit the knit stitches and purl the purl stitches. Repeat row 2

M1 Make 1 stitch by knitting into back loop of horizontal bar lying before next stitch.


...is this a little confusing to anyone else???

Where is the cast on instructions? How do I K1, P1 when there aren't any stitches on my needles? And if I'm not supposed to do these rows first where am I supposed to put them back into the pattern?



(I like to read all the instructions before I begin a project so I can see what is expected. Just like reading a cooking recipe so I can be prepared for what's next.)
