How to do

I have a problem with the pattern. I do not know what I should do next. The pattern says:

Main Body
Dec row (RS), Buttonhole Row 2: K3, k2tog [yo] twice, knit to last 3 sts, ssk, k1 – 1 st dec’d.
Next row: Purl to last 7 sts, p2tog (yo with prev st), p2tog (yo with next st), purl to end.
Establish Patt
Row 1: K1, work Row 1 of Berry Stitch to last st, k1.
Row 2: P1, work Row 2 of Berry Stitch to last st, k1.
Work Rows 3-8 of Berry Stitch, keeping 1 st in St st each edge.
Dec row: K1, work in patt to last 3 sts, p2tog, k1 – 1 st dec’d.
Work 9 rows even in patt.
Rep these 10 rows, 7 more times, then rep Dec row 1 more time – 80 (92, 100, 108, 116, 124) sts rem.

I do not understand what 9 and 10 rows need to be repeated.

You are my last hope. Please help.

Yours sincerely


Welcome to KnittingHelp!
I find it puzzling too. The way I would probably work this is to work rows 1-8 of the Berry pattern, then call the Dec. Row, Row 1 of a repeat of Berry pattern. You could then work the 8 rows of Berry pattern 7 more times, with a Dec row worked into row 1.
I know that this ignores the directions to repeat these [U]10[/U] [U]rows[/U] but since there are no directions for the wrong side row (a row 10) to go with the Dec Row, this would be my best alternative.
Have you tried emailing the designer or Universal Yarn?

Thank you for answer.
