Not understanding the stitches in this pattern!
I am working om this pattern (well, attempting):
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/vite-cowl

Right in the beginning it has you cast on 18 stitches, but doesn't the first row require more than that? This is probably just me missing some key factor here, but any input would be much appreciated! Thanks!

Cast on 18 sts
Row 1: K11, ssk, yo, k1, yo, p2, yo, k2tog

K 11
2 for the ssk
K1
P2
K2tog -- all equals 18!!!!!
Hope this helps!! That cowl looks beautiful! Be sure to post a pic here when it's finished!!

The yo doesn't make a stitch until you do it, that creates one where there wasn't one before.
