i'm sure this is very simple but how do you "PM"? i know that is stands for "place marker" but what is that and how is it done?  and here's another question...the pattern says to end on RS row. does that mean that i stop after knitting a row? or purling a row?

this is my first pattern other than hats and scarves and i dont want to screw it up....thanks in advance

RS = Right side. Which would be the front of whatever you're making.

A marker is a small ring that you place on your needle between stiches.  So you could, for example, knit 14 stitches, put a marker on your needle, and then continue knitting.  When you get to the marker again, you slip it from one needle to the other and keep going.  It's a good way to remember that you have to do something, like decrease, at a certain spot.
