Help with King Cole pattern 3482 - rib4, rib2tog

Hi everyone,

I hope someone might be able to help!

I am knitting a square poncho. Only got to row 12, but it says: rib 0, rib2tog, *rib 3, rib2tog, rep from * to last 0 sts, rib to end. The last stitch on the previous row was a K1. Can anyone tell me how to rib2tog, then rib3, rib2tog? I’m guessing the rib2togs are the decreases? I found the rib 0 bit a bit confusing too!

Thanks so much

Oh, my mistake, my last stitch on the previous row was a P1

Welcome to the forum!
Yes, the rib2tog are the decreases. When it says “rib 0” or “knit 0”, or similar directions, skip over that step.
For the rib2tog, you can probably do a k2tog (knit2tog).
What are the directions for the next row? Are you changing to stockinette stitch?

Thank you so much for the reply! The next row is K to end, to start stocking stitch - you guessed right! I ended up calling the yarn company that wrote the pattern and speaking to one of their pattern advisors - she was really helpful. There was a couple of other points I needed help with too so thought I’d get them all explained in one hit! But thank you so much for offering your help. I have completed row 12 and now onto the easy peasy knitting!
