Having problems reading a pattern PLEASE HELP!
im trying a new pattern out and in the stitch glossary it says-
inc work(k1,yo,k1) in st-2sts increased
which i understand, the confusing part is in the actual directions

on row 1 it says p1*k1, inc in next st, k1, p2, k1 tbl, p2, k1, k3tog, k1, p2, k1 tbl, p2: rep from * once more, end k1, inc in next st, k1, p1.

the stuff in red is what i dont understand.
do i k1, yo, k1 then just k1?
help!

The part in red is telling you to do the k yo k all in one stitch, not as separate stitches (kok is how I abbreviate this increase). So yes, p1 k1, kok, k p2 and so on.. Then you repet everything between the *s again, and end the row with k1, kok, k1, p1 on the last 4 stitches.

What stitch glossary? The one here or on your pattern? I'm not seeing that increase in the text you wrote.

But, isn't in in next st kfb? Maybe there's something I'm missing. You're usually right. It would help if we knew what pattern it was.

You're right on both counts (though not necessarily that I'm usually right - I'm wrong too sometimes). If the pattern says this is how you do the increase, then it's a double inc; if she's just getting this from another glossary, it's kfb. Depends what the stitch count should end up as. The repeat does have a double decrease in it, the k3tog, so that would work with a double increase.
