I need help with my pattern.

Here’s the first few instructions…

With smaller circular needles, CO 96 sts.

Join and work in k1, p2 ribbing for 6 rnds.

Change to larger circular needle.

**Rnds 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5: K2, p2, k6, p2; rep from to end of round.
Rnd 6: K2, p2, c6f, p2; rep from * to end of round.**

Rep from ** to ** 3 times.

Re rnds 1 and 2 again.

So, first I’ll knit 6 rnds doing knit 1, purl 2. Then I’ll change needles (How do I do that, btw?). Next for rnds 1 through 5 I’ll knit 2, purl 2, knit 6 and purl 2, right?

Now for rnd 6 I’ll first do the knit 2, purl 2, cable 6 forward (I’m going to teach myself how to do it when I get to that part ( ) and then purl 2. After I do that then I’ll just go back to knit 2, purl 2, knit 6, purl 2 to the end of that round. Right?

I’m not sure I understand how to Rep. from ** to ** 3 times. My brain is hurting as I sit here and try to figure it out. :?? Wait, maybe I do understand. I’ll knit a total of 18 rows, right? Just doing the same things I did for rounds 1 through 6? Then it says Rep rnds 1 and 2 again, so does that mean just do it again for 2 more rounds?

If so, why don’t the instructions just say rep. from ** to ** for 20 rows? Or is it that I have it all wrong? :shifty:
