Place this stitch on the left needle by inserting the needle from front to back into the stitch, and knit the stitch in the front of the loop. Repeat from *, end with the last purl stitch on left needle. Next row begins 1×1 ribbing and is considered Row 1. Unravel the chained cast on, starting from the tail with the knot.
