I dont understand this row and its driving me crazy!
Ok, so, this is my first time attempting an infants sweater. Or any sweater for that matter. Row 3 says to k1, (k1, yo, k1) into next st, *sl 1, (k1, yo, k1) into next st; rep from * to last st, k1. Ok, so what does (k1, yo, k1) mean? why is it in parentheses? and I've never seen "into next st" before in instructions. Does that have any special meaning? THEN. The next row says to k3 tog tbl. When you tbl, do you enter the stitches like a purl but from the back? I'm terrible with diagrams but thats what the photo looked like to me. I think thats all I needed to know. Thank you to whomever can answer this for me!

I think you are going to do all of what is in parenthesis into one stitch. To knit through the back loop you just go in toward the back of the stitch. See the glossary link at the top of the page.

Please post a pattern link if you can, it'll help us help you.

(k1, yo, k1) is in parentheses because it indicates everything inside is done in ONE STITCH. Insert ndl, K1 but leave on ndl. Bring yarn fwd between ndls (the YO) and K1 again. Now drop your st off the left ndl. All worked in one (or 'next') st.
