# How many rows of knitting?

I’m knitting a men’s sleeveless vest and the pattern says: 1st row…
2nd row… repeat these 2 rows 9 times (20 rows)
THEN
1st row…
2nd row…
Repeat these 2 rows 3 times
My question is: will I knit 6 rows in total OR 8 rows in total ? There are no brackets after this repeat so I’m presuming it’s just 2 x 3 = 6 rows
But don’t want to continue if I’m wrong and in the end won’t do enough rows. Thanks for your help

Hi there … I am assuming your question is regarding the second set of two rows?

I am reading it to say work rows 1 & 2 THEN do both again 3 more times for a total of 8 rows!

Thanks for your answer. Yes it didn’t give the total rows in brackets like the 1st repeat.

Another vote for 8 rows based on the way the previous which included a row count was done.

Thanks so much. The 1st repeat does have the rows in brackets after, but all the following instructions in the pattern, don’t put the number of rows in brackets, just repeat it e.g. 3 times so I should do the 2 rows then do them AGAIN 3 more times?

That’s how I see it. Following the way the first set was counted this makes sense.
