I'm working on a Yoga Wrap and a line in the pattern states the following: *K7, M1 *, repeat * to * across row ending with K1—49 sts Cast on was 33 sts, and if I'm reading the above correctly it says to K7 ,M1 repeating the length of the row...that only adds 6 sts, no where near the 49 that I am interpreting that to mean. I'm new to knitting, so be gentle if this is an easy fix.

Look for a couple options on the Increases page. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

So k7 m1, k7 m1 and so on would only add about 5 or 6 sts, so yes, maybe it does mean k7, m1, k1, m1, k1, m1 and end with k7, and the increase in this case ought to be kfb. Can you link to the pattern? Maybe seeing things in context would help. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

That would give you a 16st increase from 33 to 49sts. It looks like the Chocolate Lily Yoga Wrap. Google the pattern name for PDF. Last edited by salmonmac : 03-26-2012 at 05:46 AM.
