# Feather and fan comfort shawl

Hello i started this this pattern and i am stuck on row 57 i was wondering if anyone know how many stitches i should have on my needles before i start knitting this row it don’t seem to work out for me THIS IS THE ROW I AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH
57th row: K1, yo, [(k2tog) 3 times, (yo, k1) 6 times, (k2tog) 3 times] 3 times*, (k1, yo) twice, k1, repeat from * to ** once, yo, k1
AM I SUPPOSE TO K2TOG 3X X 3X I NEED TO DO IT A TOTAL OF 9X

THANKS CAROL

I could be wrong but to me it looks like it would be like this: (applying the algebraic concept of parenthesis to the instructions, Each set of stitches between the () in my explanation is the Full amount of stitches from * to **)
k1, yo, (k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, k2tog, k2 tog, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, k2tog, k2 tog, k2tog,) k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, (k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, k2tog, k2 tog, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, k2tog, k2 tog, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, k2tog, k2 tog, k2tog,) yo, K1

Does that work?

I think you have 113sts at the beginning of row 57 and 117 at the end of row 57. The yo’s outside the repeat * are the only net increases.
(k2tog) 3 times, (yo, k1) 6 times, (k2tog) 3 times and then repeat this sequence 2 more times.

Your could write the pattern as:
K1, yo,
[(k2tog) 3 times, (yo, k1) 6 times, (k2tog) 3 times] 3 times
(k1, yo) twice, k1,
[(k2tog) 3 times, (yo, k1) 6 times, (k2tog) 3 times] 3 times
yo, k1
