Front: Cast on 29 sts on smaller circular needles with brown heather. Knit rib back and forth on needles for 25 cm - start and end with K 1 (edge st) and K 3.
So yes, written differently than most I have seen. The rib pattern in this pattern is a k3, p3 rib. Here goes:
Row 1: K1 *k3, p3* four times, k4.
So here's the strange part. It is obviously a rib, so the pattern should then follow:
Row 2: K1 *p3, k3* four times, p3, k1.
Your even number rows should NOT end with k3, k1, not if you are following a rib pattern.
The k1 at the beginning and end of the even rows is only if you are to do a selvedge in garter stitch, otherwise it should be p1 for the 1st and last stitch on the even rows.
