Woven Rib St: something isn't right
Happy Sunday all!

In order to learn different things without stress I have been going pattern by pattern in the book Super Stitches Knitting by Karen Hemingway.

So far there have been a few patterns that needed a lot of corrections and I was able to figure out how to right the wrong but this woven rib is killing me. All it seems I am doing is making increases with no end in sight.

It reads as follows:
Multiples of 2, plus 1
R 1(rs): *K1, yfwd, sl1, ybk - rep from * to the last st, K1
R 2: P
Repeat these 2 rows.

I have pulled this out about a dozen times thinking that I am miscounting but what I am coming up with looks absolutely nothing like the picture in the book. Not to mention with all of the yfwds all I am doing is making this larger and larger.

Am I simple, is there something obvious that I am missing or is the pattern just off and in need of a tweak. I even looked at and their woven rib was nothing like this one and even that didn't add up correctly.

Thank you all in advance for any clarity on this

The yarn forward doesn't use a stitch. What you should have is a knit stitch, the yarn coming forward, the slipped stitch, then the yarn going back (which will leave a float across the slipped stitch on that side of the work), and so on until you knit the last stitch.

OK, I see what I'm doing. I was essentially doing a y/o as the yfwd.. duh.
See, sometimes it just takes another set of eyes

I did scratch the yfwd instruction out though for the future b/c I know I'll make this mistake again. It's obvious now that if the st after the K1 is Sl1 that you are going to move the yarn forward.
