Chart Knitting

Hi - I’m working on the cat afghan from Knit Simple winter 06/07. It has several different charts. The one I would like to start next is a 20 stitch repeat. The directions say "Cast on 49 stitches. Work chart #5 as foll: Work 20 stitch repeat twice, then work first 9 stitches once more."
I’m clear with what I’m supposed to do with what the chart shows, just the twenty stitch repeat. But when they say then work the first 9 stitches once more, what am I supposed to do with them? Just knit them on each row? Or follow the first nine stitches of the 20 stitch repeat? Thank you for your help!! :muah:

You work the 20 stitch repeat twice, and then work the last 9 stitches exactly as you did the first 9 stitches. This may change from row to row, as you work through the chart.

Thank you so much! I’ve been reading it and re-reading it and haven’t been able to make sense of it. Now I can start knitting! :cheering:

No problem! :thumbsup:
