    I have a question: on row 3, I placed the markers as stated, ending the row with 26 stitches. On row 4, the next thing on my circs is the marker I placed at the beginning for the row. In order to start row 4 with the kfb increase as stated, I either have to slip that marker first OR I do the kfb increase in the last stitch of row 3, the 26th stitch. What is the correct way?
