On a purl row, what does Make two stitches with 1 mean?
I'm making a GarnStudios pattern and their instructions aren't always clear. On the first lace row chart (a purl row) one box says "Work 2 sts in 1 st." What does this mean? I know it's an increase....Anyone have a more specific idea?

It is a rather non-specific increase so you can do your favorite increase here or a kfb or a krl, both on the increases page at the top of this page. Later, there is a make 3 from one st in the chart and that is very specific as to how to do the increase.
Mmm, lovely pattern.

It would be a pfb where you'd increase a stitch out of one stitch. The m1 increases don't use a stitch to make the new one.

Hi GJ. On the first lace row chart, M1A, the increase (2 sts from 1st, open circle in a box) is on a knit row (open box). Actually, that's what it looks like in the other lace charts which are worked in the round, too..

Thanks, I didn't look at the chart. But you're right, the inc is on the knit row so it would be kfb.

Well, the question really was about a pfb. I wonder of GJ is planning on knitting this back and forth rather than in the round?

Yep, that's what I replied to, about on the purl row. Still, that would be a RS row, whether in the round or flat and would be knit anyway.

So you both TOTALLY helped me out...I'm working another pattern that calls for making stitches on purl rows, so you helped there.
And on this pattern, I totally mis-read the charts. I've only knit with charts a couple of times and it's been awhile! I am knitting this in the round as instructed and just assumed that it was a purl row!
So thank you both!

If you're knitting in the round, you would read all rows from R to L, and I think the 2nd row is supposed to be purled in the round to make a garter st ridge on the RS.
