Pattern confusing me :??
Okay, trying to start baby blanket and the directions have me confused It says to (K1, P1 twice) in next st. What in blue blazes does that mean? And am I really going to purl twice into one stitch and if so, how on earth am I going to do that?

So confused, please help.

It's doable. Knit as normal, but don't slide it off. Bring the yarn between the needles to the front, and purl the same stitch. Again, don't slide it off. Bring the yarn back, knit into the same stitch, bring the yarn forward, purl into the same stitch and THEN slide it off. You'll have 4 stitches where you had one.

Okay, so I am not just purling twice, I am also knitting twice.

If that is the case, that sounds pretty simple. Thanks Ingrid. I appreciate the information. Wish they would have made it a little clearer in the pattern.

Looking at the way it's written, the 'twice' should have been outside the ().

I agree, Ingrid, I think it means to k1,p1 in one stitch over the next 2 stitches. If that made it any clearer....

Is it supposed to be a bobble? It IS a baby blanket, you know how they like to throw those on there! Then you would (K1, P1 twice) in the next stitch, but for sure (K1,P1,K1,P1) would have been more clear.

Joanne - Is there something after that direction, like turn and knit/purl those stitches or do you continue on to the end of the row?

That's what Ingrid meant - " Looking at the way it's written, the 'twice' should have been outside the ()"

(k1,p1 in the next st) twice is the same as k1,p1 in each of the next two sts.

I meant to say (k1,p1) twice into next stitch. That's what I described. And it does sound like it could be a bobble.

Sue - I'm getting twiced out. I agree that (k1,p1 in the next st) twice is the same as k1,p1 in each of the next two sts, but I guess I was going back to the original Ingrid post of it's 4 stitches out of 1 and not your post of k1,p1 in one stitch over the next 2 stitches.
