Need help reading pattern!
Hi!

I'm in the midst of knitting a simple shrug and am stuck at the start of the increase row. You start out by casting on 46 stitches, do a few rows of ribbing, a few reversed stockinette rows then start with the increases. The row prior to the first increase is as follows:

Row 8 -work 7 pm, k1, pm, work 7, pm, k1, pm, work 14 , pm, k1, pm,
work 7, pm,k1,pm, work 7

Then the following row is where you start the increases.

First Increase Row: Knit1, purl1, and continue in rev st to 1 st before pm, yo, slip marker, k1, sl marker, yo to end.

I don't understand the directions that are in bold. What does she mean when she says to "yo to end"? Surely it doesn't mean to do yarn overs the whole way through? Wouldn't that result in a lot of holes?

Hope this is straightforward enough. If someone could help me that would be really great!

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to KH. A link to your pattern might help. It's probably rev st to end of the row.

I have it downloaded through Adobe Acrobat...Not sure how I can link it to this message. Would it be totally obnoxious to post the pattern below this message?

Don't post the whole pattern please. That would get us into copyright problems. Could you tell us the name of the pattern or link to a photo of the shrug?
Basically, what you're doing is a yo on either side of a center stitch. It sounds like your pattern is asking you to repeat that pattern, that is, work rev st st to 1 st before pm, yo, slip marker, k1, sl marker, yo and repeat rev st st.

(I wonder if it really means "one st before marker" however and not just "to the marker". That's where a look at the photo would help.

I can't link it because it is a pattern I bought off etsy.

Salmonmac, yes, what you said makes total sense! I just tried it and it works perfectly so thank you. There are a couple mistakes in the pattern which is mostly what lead to my confusion. Glad to have figured it out!
