I just started the Little Bubbles and am knitting the largest size. At first I thought there was a mistake in the Increase Row, but now I'm wondering if my understanding of the M1 instruction is screwy.
I have always understood that K3, M1 means Knit 3 sts, then M1 into the next st (the 4th st). So *K3, M1 would be working a pattern over 4 sts (turning 4 sts into 5). After completing the first increase row and ending up with too few sts (93 instead of 99), I'm wondering if K3, M1 doesn't mean K3, with the new stitch being made into the 3rd st, working a pattern over 3 sts (turning 3 sts into 4).
I hope this makes sense. I've done a fair bit of knitting over the years and have never had a problem with increases, so I'm just wondering if this whole pattern is written differently from what I'm used to.
