NEWBIE, I'm clueless!!! - and another question!
I just bought the knitting pure and simple tunic pattern - and I can't even get past the casting on WHat does it mean when it says "knit into the front and back of the first stitch" ?

I can see this isn't going to be as easy as I thought!

It means you're making an increase. Knit into the front as normal, and don't slide it off. Then knit into the back loop fo the same stitch.

If you check out the Abbreviations tab, you can see videos of lots of pattern stitches. Check out kfb for the above if it's not clear enough.

OK, so my pattern calls for making a buttonhole - it has you YO on one row, and then coming back - am I supposed to count the YO as a stitch and knit into it? It doesn't say not to, but I don't know how the hole will stay there for a buttonhole...

am I just thinking too much?

The YO creates an eyelet. Just knit into it--you'll have the hole. It'll be small, but knitting is stretchy.
