make one; 12 becomes 21 or 18?
Help!

The pattern for the hat I would like to make says; CO12 st. distribute over 3 dpns

k one round

next round: k1, m1, repeat around- 18 stitches total

I think this makes 21, not 18, but every pattern in the book says this makes 18, does someone have a solution for me? (Each needle has four stitches; between each k1 you m1, this adds 3 st per needle, so 9 at the end of a round; which equals 21 altogether, right?)

Thank you for answering, I am desperate!
