Help with pattern instructions
I am a beginner at knitting and have decided to make a Christmas stocking. I am working with circular knitting needles.
The area in which I cannot figure out is the following:
**Work first 3 rnds of Pattern 1 (I believe this is telling me to knit the first three rows according to the pattern)
**Next rnd, k 2 sts as set, k2tog, yo, k to 4sts before end of rnd, you k2tog,then k rem 2 sts. (I am struggling because I do not understand what it means to k 2 sts as set)
I would appreciate any help!!
