toy monkey
Hello. Im new to this site and new to knitting. I have a 3mo and started knitting. I have only done two scarves, but im going to start working on a toy monkey for her. I bought a magazine with the pattern, but dont understand some things.
What does it mean to increase into every st to end? does it mean that after every single stitch i add one?
what does it mean to (inc1,K1)? is it the same as above?
Thanks in advance!

Generally if you are increasing INTO each stitch you'll using KFB which means knit front and back.

Halfway down the page you'll see the instructions for both continental and english method.

Increasing into every stitch means, as you say, to make a new stitch for every stitch on your needle, ending up with twice the number you started out with.
If you (inc1,K1) you are also increasing one stitch for each stitch on your needle.
There are videos showing various ways to increase or "make " a stitch. One way is to knit into the front and back of a stitch, (kfb) although this doesn't look so good if you are doing stockinette stitch as it leaves a little bump on the front. You can "make" a stitch (m1) in different ways by picking up between or below the stitches on your needle.
Look at the videos and pick one method that makes sense to start out with; you can try other methods later on.
Good luck, I'm sure your child will love her monkey.
