Anyone here made the LB Knitted Waterfall Throw???
I printed out the instructions for it from the Lion Brand website and it was only THEN that I discovered something confusing (to me, anyway). Here's a link to this pattern:

http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/kh....html?noImages=

The part that's confusing is right at the beginning:

Cast on 58 sts.
Row 1: K1b, P1b *K1b, K1, P1b, P1*; repeat from * to * (etc.....)

My question is HOW can I "Knit 1 in the row below" if it's the very first row of the pattern??? There is NO "row below" to knit into. Is there some secret that I'm missing on this?? Some special cast on method I should use to create a row somehow???

Any ideas/help/advice is EXTREMELY welcome!!!!!

The pattern says that k1b means "knit 1 into back loop".
Is there a picture somewhere? I'd like to see what it looks like.

K1b can also mean ktbl, and that's how it's explained here. This will make twisted ribbing.

I thought that's what that abbreviation meant, but when I googled "k1b and p1b" it came up with the Knit 1 below or purl 1 below. I was confused because my afghan wasn't coming out the same as the picture on the LB site.

Here's some pictures of other knitters from the Ravelry site:

Thanks for the link. It's pretty. Are you using Homespun yarn? I think I might try it in a different yarn.

Mostly people use ktbl/ptbl, so it's a little unusual; always go by the definition given in the pattern. On the glossary page it's shown both ways.
