Help with pattern translation (total newbie question)


#1

Hi, knitters! I’m planning to attempt this very simple pattern, but I’m confused by the phrasing (this is just part of the whole thing):

Work in Moss st for 3 Rows
Work in Stockinette st for 12 Rows (you should end up with a purl row).
Start with Double Moss stitch, and repeat the pattern rows 6 times, ending with row4.

What does “repeat the pattern rows” mean in this case? I mean, which part am I repeating, the moss, the stockinette, the double moss…? Sorry for the dumb question and thank you for any help!

Welcome to KH.
There is a four row pattern to “double moss” stitch. So that is what you repeat.

“Double Moss stitch:
Row1-2: k1,p1
Row3-4: p1,k1” repeat these four rows a total of 6 times (or a total of twenty-four rows).

Thanks!
