Pattern calls for pm, what is that st?
I am looking at a pattern, and it calls for a pm. What is that?

Here is a sample row of the pattern to clarify:

Row 2: P 40[48, 56], pm, p3, pm, p 40[48, 56].

i believe it means to "place marker" and you place the marker on the stitch you just knit or purl as in this particular pattern .

you can go here if ou have any other abbriviation confusion. i know i always do even if i've seen it a million times lol.

Yep, place marker. If you look in the upper right of the page you'll see the abbreviations list.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

:XX: pm = put a stitch marker

There are many types of stitch markers - basically it is just something (often a little ring or some sort) that can be slipped on your needle and that won't slip off accidentally.
