This is where I am confused...LOL...at least I think. Where am I missing the round. Is it earlier in the instructions?
Round 5: *k1, yo* around to marker. (20 stitches).
OK I am going to break it down a bit further for you to help you understand.
- Cast on 5 stitches.
- Knit one round (that means knit those 5 stitches).
- Then place marker at the beginning of the next round (which means after those 5 stitches have been knit, place a stitch marker between the fifth stitch and the next one you are going to knit).
- Then knit one round, making 1 stitch in each stitch you knit, thus giving you 10 stitches.
Hope this helps.
