3-st repeat

Hi there, I am starting fingerless gloves and am wondering what “3-st repeat” means please.

Thank you!

It means that there is some kind of a pattern that uses 3 stitches that is repeated over and over. It could be a color pattern or a series of stitches like purl, knit, purl.

If it is at the beginning of your glove it may mean that the repeats done in the glove need to be a multiple of 3 stitches like 33, or 36. If you wanted to enlarge the pattern just a bit you would need to do it in groups of three, 3 less stitches or 3 more.
