need help with abbreviations kpk and pkp
Hi everyone

I am making a teddy bear and I am confused as to how to interpret the instructions:
K1,P1,KPK,P1,K1,PKP,K1.... etc
Does that mean that I should knit purl knit into the same stitch of last row? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again, Maria

They are double increases. For KPK you would knit into the stitch, but don't take it off. Purl into that same stitch, but don't take it off, and then knit into it again, and slip it off.

just reverse the stitches for PKP.
One of many knitting guys.
