Knit 1 - 19 stitches?
Does this mean I can CHOOSE how many stitches to knit?? That sounds wrong.

The directions on the pattern say:

Row 2: K1, M1, K to marker, M1, slip marker, K1, SM, M1, K to last stitch, M1, K 1 - 19 sts

Now everything else makes perfect sense... but knit 1 TO 19 stitches?? Huh? Anybody know what this means? It sounds like it's telling me to knit anywhere between 1 and 19 stitches, like I'm supposed to choose. What am I reading wrong?

TIA

It means k1 (the final stitch) and that you should have 19 stitches on your needle at this point.

Oh I'm so silly! I've seen that so many times (how many stitches should be on your needle at the end of a row) and always knew what it meant.... but I guess today I just --- I dunno. LOL

I blame it on the lack of coffee and maybe the new glasses...
