I understand that patt8 means 8 stitches in the established pattern but I don't understand how to continue. So in this example, the 1st row is:
(p1, k1) 3 times, p1, *k6, p2, k1, (p1, k1) 4 times, p1, repeat from * to last 13...
So the first row decrease is:
Patt4, work 2tog,*patt8, work 2tog, patt6, work 2tog, repeat from *...
work 5 rows straight
My question is how do I continue patt8?
Is it p1,k1, p1, k1,( which is patt4) p2 tog do I continue the pattern from where I was? So my next stitches to patt8 would be: k1, p1, k6?
And is continue straight mean I continue the pattern?
I hope this makes sense.
