Pattern says P2 tog*k1 p2tog.then it say work in k1p1ribbing until total lenght is 12 and a half inches. I don't know what it means to work in. Could someone please help me? Thank you.
So far, when you are p2tog you are decreasing, then k1 and p2tog again, thus decreasing a total of 2 stitches each time, at this point. Next you are working in ribbing (k1p1) until your ribbing plus the previous 5 stitching equals a length of 12.5 in. According to what you wrote, remember to include the previous sequence of stitches in your measuring for a total of 12.5 inches.
