French Girl Pattern Question

Hi everyone,
I know this is off topic, but I thought I'd post it in case Kristeen is checking this site for Fifi questions. My question is on Chantal, another FG pattern.

I just started Chantal and have a question regarding Yoke Row 7. It says to work in established rib pattern until 2 sts before the marker, then K1, P2, K1, then repeat 3 times more. I am confused. If you have two stitches before the marker, what do you do to those two stitches before the marker? I don't understand which stitches to perform the K1, P2, K1 instruction on. Please help!

Back to our regularly scheduled topics, sorry to thread-hijack.

It means that you are going to break from the original stitch pattern when you hit two st before the marker, do the K1, P2, K1 four times, then resume the original st pattern.

Kristeen leaving for France this week, (I'm going with her, YEA!) so she will be unavailable to answer questions.

Thanks, Amy - I will try that and see how it looks.
