I am currently trying to start ZigZag Stripes, a gorgeous Debbie Bliss chevron scarf from Scarf Style. Problem is I don't understand the directions, and have ripped it at least 4 or 5 times.

The 2nd row of the chevron pattern reads
K1, *p1, k4, (k1, yo, k1) all in next st, k4* rep to last 2 sts, p1, k1

What is (k1, yo, k1) all in next st?

At first I thought it was knit into front and back of stitch for an increase, but then my count is off, and there is no yarn over in that increase.

Has anyone made this scarf? I am also having trouble with Row 1 of the chevron pattern but in the interest of copyright do not want to post both rows of the pattern, and row 2 is much more confusing. Any help with this pattern would be appreciated, especially with the mysterious "all in the next st".

You were close in your guess of what to do. It means knit into the next stich, then wrap the yarn around the right needle, and knit into the stitch a second time.

So essentially I would be knitting into the stitch without dropping it off the needle, doing a yarn over and knitting again and then drop it off the needle?

Thanks for your help!
