I need help ,I cannot get passed the border row where it says ki po (0-1) and m1 Im confused what is po? I believe m1 is to increase 1 st am I right. I do not get the amount of st I need for the size. please explain . I love your patterns. thank you

I did the same thing - the numbers of stitches don't add up. P0 means you don't purl. So the pattern reads Knit 1, then P0 then Make one then purl 2 and repeat make one purl 2 til the last 2 stitches and then make one knit one. I get 55 stitches, not 61 - I've written to them on Ravelry to find out how to make the pattern right but no luck yet!
