Knitting pattern question
I recently got a pattern for a hat that I wanted to try and I think I have figured out the majority of it, and I think I have figured out how to do it except 1 row. The cast-on is 54 stitches. Here is the instructions as written:

*K1, inc, rep from * to end. 81 sts

I know I need to knit , then increase, but where I am getting caught up is I start with 54 stitches and following this I am to end with 81. If I am reading it right, shouldn't it double? Or am I simply misunderstanding the pattern completely?

It's not very clear. My guess is that it's (k1, kfb) to end. That will get you to 81.

Yes, the increase would be kfb which gives you 1 new stitch for every 2 stitches. If you prefer to m1 instead, k2, m1 all the way around.
