Help, How to read Pattern?
I am a self-taught knitter and have made a Zillion scarves. Recently finished my first non-scarf project w/the help of the videos found here, THANKS!
I found a tank pattern that I would like to try but I am confused on the directions. The pattern is from Rebecca-online and is done in Fisherman's rib. The first row reads:
K1, * slip 1, purlwise w/yarnover, K1 rep from *
So, being new to knitting, my question here is regarding the '*', do I knit just the first stitch and the 's1 purlwise w/yo then K1' all the other stitches on that row?
The second row of the pattern then reads:
*slip 1 purlwisew/yo, K1 Tog w/yo, rep from *, slip 1 purlwise w/yo
My question here is, I begin with the slip 1, ok I understand but how do you K1 tog???? I know how to K2 tog, but knit 1 does not make sense?
Maybe I am being too aggressive and trying a pattern that is too hard, but it is so cute that I just thought I'd give it a shot.

On the * question, yes, you've got that right.

I think that you knit one stitch together with the yarn over from the previous row. Make sense? :thinking:

So I am knitting 1 stitch using the yarn-over from the previous row and I do not add another yarn-over after that stitch?
I attached the Rebecca pattern. I understand row 1, but row 2 and 3 are the ones causing me confusion.
If I am reading it correctly for row 2 & 3, I am going to be adding stitches with every yarn-over?
For example, I slip 1 purl-wise then I do a yarn-over, then I knit 1 tog and then another yarn-over? Or-- do I slip 1 purl-wise then do a yarn-over and then knit 1 using the previous row yarn-over but don't do another yarnover?
Sorry if these questions/patterns are easy for others, I'm just stumped and can't seem to get my brain to process this pattern

My computer at work won't allow me to see the pattern. It is confusing. Maybe if someone has a less restricted computer they can look at the pattern and give you more help. Right now I'm lost, too.

Since there is no such thing as a k1tog, i though it meant k1tog w/ the yarn over from last time, because it seems that in row one you are increasing. Maybe someone else has better insight. Sorry. :(
