I have a question about a pattern, the instructions are the following:

*(K1, yo) twice, rep from * to lst st, k1

what am is suppose to do twice, i understand that this states knit 1 and yarn over but then what?

Thanks for your help.

Do you have a link to the pattern?

Wouldn’t it be the same as:

*K1, yo, k1, yo, rep from * to lst st, k1 ?

That is what I was thinking but wasn’t sure.

The pattern is from a book I purchased. Im just a beginner and confused by the (). I am working on a double dropped stitched. The previous 9 rows were knit stitch. Then came the following

Row 41: *(K1, yo) twice repeat from * to last stitch, k1
Row 42: Knit across dropping all yos

So Im actually stuck on both rows. Do I just repeat Knit 1, yarn over to last stitch? and how do I knit across dropping all yos?


It could be that you* k1, yo twice *all the way across–k1, yo, yo.

Then when you drop the yos on the next row, you’ll have long strands and the right number of stitches.
