Need help understanding pattern
I'm hoping to knit the Just Us Girls poncho for my granddaughter. This is a free Coats & Clark pattern. In reading the pattern instructions this section confuses me.
Row 3: K0 (1, 1, 1), [inc, place marker, P1, K1, P1, place marker, inc, K 0 (0, 1, 1] 3 times, inc, place marker, P1, K1, P1, place marker, inc, K0 (1, 1, 1) – 28 (30, 33, 33) sts.
I'll be knitting the smallest size. So the size directions are outside the parentheses. Am I supposed to ignore the increase inside the brackets? Do I start with the P1, K1, P1 inside the brackets?
I don't understand where to increase the stitches. The instructions begin with 20 stitches at the end of the neck ribbing, but I should have 28 stitches after this section of instructions.
I've already bought the yarn for this project. Can't believe this is supposed to be an EASY project, lol. Any help will be appreciated.
