Hi everyone. I am new to knitting thanks to my mom and she loves this site. I have a question regarding the directions for puff rib pattern. Row one says this: P2, *yo, k1, yo, P2; rep from star to end. 7 sts. What does 7 sts mean? What it is directing me to do? Thank you!

The 7 sts just means that at the end of that row you will have 7 sts on your needles. Just a stitch count.

sts is an abbreviation for stitches.

The 7 stitches is what you will have when you complete the row.

The number at the end of a row states how many stitches you should have when the row is done. It is there for your confidence that you did the row correctly. It would help is the words "in all" were added.

I have no clue... with out the pattern to look at 7 st could mean ... knit to the last 7 stitches.. or what every one else is talking about... if its a puff I don't see where there is any puffing going on... a little more information on the pattern itself is needed... Welcome to the forum and congrats on picking up knitting.. I know there are lots of very smart knitters here that can help with your questions..

I don't see where it says "7 stitches" in the pattern. Am I missing something?
No you aren't missing anything.
I suspect as the person has said they are just learning, that the 7sts was written there as a stitch count for the person.

Thanks. I was temporarily confused (doesn't take much)!

You do the pattern from star to star to the end of the row. When you complete the last repeat you should have 7 stitches remaining. I am working on the Wedding Shaw and this is what is in my pattern each row.

Thanks for the inputs here. When I started out, I attempted to copy various stitches, and sort of got the hang of it, but I still have to count new ones in sequence in my head!

Thank you for all your help! I got the pattern to work i think the author was just stating the number of the first stitches. I did look and I had correctly written the directions. It would have made more sense if they did that with ALL of the patterns. This was the only one that said that. Thank you!!
