I am having trouble understanding the pattern on "Pronto". Help!

I am in the middle of knitting this pattern, and it looks really pretty. However, like one commenter, I am confused about how its going to be put together! A diagram would have been a great addition. Also, I thought K1B was knitting in the back of the stitch, not down one row! But it looks fine the way I did it. Definitely not an "Easy" pattern for Novices.

What is K1B

K1B = Knit next stitch one row below, at same time,

I took the K1B as knit in back of which I did. It came out out as a very nice pattern. They should clarify in a full sentence what they mean. Very confusing. Or at least show a diagram on how to do it.

How do you sew the back seam? There is no diagram to go by. Is it he length of the cowl or the ends?

I have knitted this but cannot figure out how to sew it together. HELP!

I have checked out the pattern for this item. However, it says to cast on 2 sts(?). There must be an error... Can someone please clarify. Thanks.

I read through the entire pattern myself, and the cast on 2 stitches seems correct. Most cowl patterns start with a small number of stitches and have built in increases to give them their shape. I haven't done this one, but I did one very similiar and it worked up just fine. I wouldn't have rated the pattern easy though, because of the increases it is going to require more attention to the detail of the pattern. Hope this helps. Happy knitting
