YO: move the yarn to the front of the work (as if to purl) then pass the yarn back over the needle. This creates a new stitch.

Another newbie question sorry!
my pattern (versa) says
Perform the following rounds b4-b5 3(4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4) times:
round b4: knit
round b5: *kfab, knit...........
so I go b4 x4 then b5 x4
or
b4, b5, b4, b5
or
b4, b5, b4, b5, b4, b5, b4, b5

thanks in advance!

b4, b5, b4, b5...
Each b4, b5 is one repeat, so repeating it 3 times would be 6 rounds in total

ok so first of all GRRR ended up unpulling it as I was just using wool as stitch markers and my boys thought it was a great game to keep pulling the markers out then then completely pulled the knitting off the rounds :(
so I have now made my own markers at the bead shop so will try again!

secondly anyone know how to 'extend' a pattern? I have a gorgeous pattern that my mum wants to knit for adele but the biggest size was 6 months and well she almost 9 months now so mum wants to knit it in a size 1
anyone on here know how to modify it?
