Found a really nice neck-down pattern for a sweater but discovered a difference in the directions that I have had trouble defining. In part, it says to "place marker ON stitch and knit this stitch". Continued rows indicate one should M1, K and M1 at this point, but there is no indication of moving the marker as the work progresses.

Guess I'm rather simple minded, but these directions seem rather obtuse to me, where I'm used to placing the marker on the needle and moving it along as I progress. And frankly, I'd call this a rather poorly written direction. What's your take on this, fellow knitters??

Happy Knitting anyway !!! Marian
