reading a pattern question
If a pattern says to "Work 1 (3) rows even in St st." (My pattern needs to be the 1 row choice)-- If I knit one row --then I don't have a St st --does it means for me to knit and then purl for one row of St st. but don't I then have 2 rows? Does my question even make sense?
Later in the same pattern, it instructs me to " Work 2 rows even in St st." Same question -- Do I knit one, purl one, knit one purl one, for two St st rows or just knit one, purl one =2 rows
