I have Nicky Epstein's Knitting Block by Block book and I love everything she has but have so many questions. like...what does SET UP ROW mean?. here is the beginning of the pattern where it mentions this.
Cast on 46 stitches
set-up row: k35, p4, k7
row 1: p7, m1p<what the heck does this mean???,k4, p2tog,p33
it's no different than any other 'Row 0' (it's really 1, just a different way for some designers to write)....I think they simply want you to know how important this row is to the success of the rest of the sweater parts....make it, check it....and then you're pretty safe that the following rows will work out....
here is a site with abbreviations and terms for future needs...i use it all the time and have been knitting for 55 years....just click, save or bookmark
