Need help with beginner scarf pattern
I am a beginner and need help with a pattern for a diagonal knit/bias knit scarf... (Instructions are at end.)

What does "Slip first stitch as if to purl" mean? Is that part of the increase or is that done before the increase?

Also, what does "knit 1 18 stitches" mean? Are those additional stiches for the row, or does that just mean that all stiches in the row (except for increase & decrease) should be knit stiches?

Thanks!

-----------

Cast on 18 stitches.

Row 1 Slip first stitch as if to purl. Knit into front and back of next stitch (increase 1). Knit until 3 stitches remain on needle, knit 2 together (decrease 1), knit 1 18 stitches.

Row 2 Slip first stitch as if to purl. Knit to end.

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until about 24 inches of yarn remains. Bind off loosely and weave in ends.
