New knitter needing help with the start of my first blanket pattern!
I am a new knitter, with only hats and scarves for experience. I am trying an "easy" seed stitch blanket, but am having difficulty getting started, as I don't understand the beginning. I know how to do the seed stitch, but I have not yet done increases or used circular needles, both of which are required for this pattern. I am used to casting on a certain "large" number of stitches, and then knitting, but if I'm reading this pattern correctly, it says to cast on 2 stitches. Then it says 1st row: inc 1st in first st. K1. 3 sts. I don't understand......help please!
