Well, I've done a few simple things. Re: child's poncho Here is what the pattern says to do: (I have CO of 42 st. ) Next row (RS): *(K1, M1) rep from * across (54, (63, 72). Change to larger 24" circ ndls, Beg with P row, work St st for 5 rows. The size that I am doing would correlate to the 63 figure. I don't get what they are trying to tell me inorder to go from 42-63 sts. If I K1, M1 all the across it actually doubles the # of sts. Do I K1, M1 until I have 63 sts? What do I do with the remaining 21 sts? Finish the row off with just K? Marcie

What I'd do is add another K1 to the formula, to get the correct number of sts evenly spaced. like this Next row (RS): *(K1, M1, K1) rep from * across (54, (63, 72).
