# Help understanding pattern

I don’t understand what it means to continue as established. In rows 5-10 & rows 25 - 34. What rows am I to repeat?

BODY
Rnd 1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook—6 sc.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around—12 sts.
Rnd 3: [Sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] 6 times—18 sts.
Rnd 4: [2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 sts] 6 times—24 sts.
Rnds 5–10: Continue as established, increasing 6 sc evenly spaced in every rnd—60 sts.
Rnd 11: Sc in each st around.
Rnd 12: [Sc in next 9 sts, 2 sc in next st]—66 sts.
Rnds 13–18: Sc in each st around.
Rnd 19: [Sc in next 9 sts, sc2tog] 6 times—60 sts.
Rnds 20–23: Sc in each st around.
Rnds 24: [Sc in next 8 sts, sc2tog sc in next 8] 6 times—54 sts.
Rnds 25–34: Continue as established, decreasing 6 sc evenly spaced in every 5th rnd—42 sts.
Rnds 35: Sc in each st around.
Rnd 36: [Sc in next 5 sts, sc2tog] 6 times—36 sts.
Rnds 37–40: Continue as established, decreasing 6 sc evenly spaced in every other rnd—24 sts.
Rnds 41 and 42: Sc in each st around. Fasten off.

I guess row 24 is to be 4 st instead of 8 on pattern.

I think it means you do rows 1,2,3,4,5 then 1,2,3,4,5 again continuing to increase evenly to reach 60 sts. then continue from row 11 to 24 and then you repeat the decreases, as before, decreasing 6 evenly every 5th round.This is how it reads to me anyway.
Good luck with it

Thanks very much for the pattern link!
Since you need to increase only 6sts per round on 6 rows (rows 5-10), repeat rows 3 and 4. Increase the number of sc by one each row.
row 5 [3sc, 2sc in the next stitch] 6 times (30sts total)
row 6 [2sc in the next stitch, 4sc] 6 times (36sts)
row 7 [5sc, 2sc in the next stitch] 6 times (42sts)
row 8 [2sc in the next stitch, 6sc] 6 times (48sts)
etc., through row 10

There is an alternative and if one doesn’t looks good, you might try this. Since the pattern isn’t clear, you might just repeat row 4 increasing the number of single crochet sts between the increases in each row. The idea is to distribute the increases across the row.
