*work as set to 1 st before m, slip next st to right needle, remove m,
slip the st back to left needle, pm,
m1L, k3, remove marker, k1, m1R, pm,
rep from* one more time, work as set to end

Does that help? You're just putting the marker you already have on the other side of the stitch.

Finding things in the pattern instructions can be like an Easter egg hunt.

so as far as i can tell the instructions to replace markers on row 1. is just a reminder that the markers need to be back on the needles and not to forgot to put them as where indicated. am i right?

You're welcome, np. That's me too. I do the same kind of thing. All too often I feel I'm searching for buried treasure, videos are the same way, the part I need is hidden in some middle part and I can't find it again. Knit and learn.
