K2tog or right leaning purl decrease?

Hi everyone!

I’m a fairly new knitter I completed a scarf and one pair of socks where I didn’t put a leg pattern. I’m now attempting a lace leg pattern to try learn some new skills but after starting I’m not seeing the right result.

I have a question regarding k2tog. Basically when written out the pattern tells me to do a few k2togs but the chart provided in the pattern has a key and where the symbol that correlated to K2TOG is the written says it should be a right leaning purl decrease? Which I believe are two different things? Can someone help me clarify?

I’m also a little confused as it has astris to repeat a section the finish with a purl I’m working on 4 DPs and a 5th one for doing the round. Am I right in thinking as I have 60 stitches I completed 6 units of 10 ? With the purl every tenth stitch otherwise if I do the repeat it wouldn’t calculate to 60?

Hope this makes sense? As I said I’m completely new to pattern knitting :yarn:

Thanks so much in advance

Welcome to the forum!
What is the name of your pattern?

So the pattern is both charted and written out, is that correct? You may be able to tell whether the pattern wants a k2tog or a p2tog (right leaning) from the photo.

Can you exactly quote the line with the repeat? Don’t give us a large portion of the pattern due to copyright please.
