Pattern reading help
I'm knitting the Darling Darby Sweater (found on ravelry, craftsy, etc) and I'm confused on the pattern.

it says:
Rnd 1: K1, inc 1, work to the last back st, inc 1, k1, pm, work first set of leg sts, pm, work chest sts, pm, work to end of rnd.
What I'm confused about is "work first set of leg stitches, work chest stitches."
My gut says "one giant leg hole isn't right" and I'm wondering if I knit one set of leg stitches, then the chest sts, then the 2nd leg sts. Or if I knit 2x leg stitches (because 2 legs) and then the chest sts, or if I only knit one set of leg sts and then the chest sts.

If it helps, the amount of leg stitches I need to work is 18.

I can see the pattern links for this dog sweater but I haven't joined to see the pattern. Yes, knit across the back (with the increases at the sides), knit one set of leg stitches, then the chest and then the second leg and continue to finish the round. See also what the next lines say just in case they mention the second leg sts there. However, it does seem that both legs should be worked in the same round and not offset by different rounds.

Thank you! I figured it was leg, chest, leg but the wording is strange.

Thank you.
