Please Help! Can't figure out this pattern
I'm attempting my first top-down cardigan and having a problem with understanding something I need to do. The set-up row (WS): P1, PM, P12, PM, P38, PM,P12, PM, P1. But then, the next row(RS) and the increase row (RS) confuse me. They both have directions to ...K1, M1L; *[K to 1 st before marker, M1R, K1, SM, K1, M1L]; repeat from * twice (that's three times on the increase row). My problem is with the part where it says K to 1 st before marker--after I've done that the first time, I don't have markers in that section, if I did the set up row correctly. Please help!

you knit one, m1L; knit 11 (to one stitch before the next marker; then m1R, k1, sm, k1, m1L
repeating from the * you knit 36 to reach one before the next marker...m1R, k1, sm, k1, m1L

and repeat again, this time knitting 10 to reach 1 before the next marker....

You put the markers on the needle, not the sts, that way they'll travel up the knitting with you.

Thanks for your help...sorry i was being so dense but I was trying to make it more complicated than it is..for some reason, i expected a marker at the end of the bracket instead of just doing what pattern instructed...whew! thanks again.
