I’m so confused

I just started to knit again after many years. I am making a sweater for my daughter…the following instruction has me very confused…I think I have it right so I just need verification…8 foll 4th rows…does this mean every 4 Rows 8 times? Thanks for your help

You’re right, every 4th row, 8 times (might help to think of this as 4 row sections, and you need to work 8 sections).


Thank you so much…geeez why don’t they just say what I thought. I guess I’m still in ‘old school’ mode…LOL. They make it harder than it should be. I am so glad I found this site. I have been trying to figure it out for weeks and that’s what I came up with and I am so thankful that you gave me verification.


Glad I could help! :slight_smile: I’m sure your daughter will be thrilled too lol

Don’t feel bad. The more you knit the more you’ll realize that people have many different ways of describing the same action. That one made me do a double-take; I’ve not seen it worded quite that way before. Good luck!
