make 1 help!
Hey everyone!

So I'm fairly new to knitting! Decided it would be a fun hobby to pick up and make some christmas presents in the process! I'm trying to make socks and I'm doing pretty well! I am following this pattern (www . ravelry. com/patterns/library/kalajoki - click the free ravelry download button and there is an english pdf) but I ran into a bit of confusion with the no stitch and the make 1 stitch.

I don't fully understand how it is supposed to work. I have 18 stitches as the pattern shows and I have read that the "no stitch" box means to just skip it and go to the next stitch but, in the case of the first row, that would mean I am moving on to stitch 5 and still haven't done anything with stitch 4 so then when I reached the end of the row I would be left with one more stitch on my needle.

Now this issue may be solved in the whole make 1 (or what I believe is make 1). I know how to do the make 1 but I'm not sure if the description of "pick up the yarn between sts onto left needle and knit it tbl, k1 (1 sts increased)" means that I add the stitch and then knit 1 onto the 4th stitch?

My other issue with this is that if I add that stitch then once I move onto the next row.. I now have 19 stitches so how do I go about incorporating that? I'm sorry if I am not explaining myself very well! But hopefully this makes some sense! Thank you for any help that can be offered up!

Jess

Is that your pattern? I'm not familiar with reading charts so I'll leave that to someone else.

You're reading the pattern wrong. Row 1 is at the bottom.

Hello Jess and welcome to KnittingHelp!

Row 14 of the charted pattern has a k2tog decrease with no corresponding increase in the same row, so you will be working with a decreased stitch count until Row 19 where you will be doing a M1 increase stitch with no corresponding decrease in that row. This will return you to your original stitch count.

Row 28 has a k2tog decrease and Row 33 has a M1 increase, again returning you to your original stitch count.

According to the instruction, you will be picking up the yarn running between your stitches, put it on your left needle, knit it, and then knit the following stitch. You will have then increased by one stitch.

Figured it out!! I was reading it from the top down.. which I really shouldn't have been doing seeing as the row numbers start from 1 on the bottom! Oops! But it makes sense now!
