Quick pattern question please
I'm knitting a pair of TOE UP socks on DPN's.
The part I'm a little confused about is the wording on starting the gusset.
Round 1 Work across needle 1 and 2, then the increases it says to knit.
Does work across in this case just mean knit 1 and 2? If so why not just put the word knit in and if not what does work across mean?
Thanks for any help.
