I am getting ready to start the Ramona Ruth sweater by Deb Barnhill http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ramona-ruth
and was reading through the directions before I started. I am already confused. The introduction says, "a little twisted rib placket makes the neckhole large enough for the biggest of babies heads." The directions start out:
Odd rows 1-9: p1, [k1 tbl, p1]; rep till end, turn
Even rows 2-8: k1, [p1 tbl, k1]; rep till end, turn
Granted I have only been knitting a few years, but I have never seen p1 tbl or heard of twisted rib. I have no idea how to accomplish this. Any suggestions?
