Knitting in the round: start over or keep going?

Hi all! I’m making gloves for the first time, and I have a question about the pattern.
The instructions say to CO 40 stitches and join into a round.
Rounds 1-4: *k1, ktbl1, p1, repeat from * to end of round.

Does this mean, after the 40th stitch, that I should start over again with k1, ktbl1, p1, or keep going with whatever is next in the sequence? The reason I ask is because, since 40 isn’t divisible by 3, I don’t end the round by purling.


No, the end of round is when you complete the 40th stitch. Are you sure there’s not a final K1 or p1 in those instructions? What’s the pattern?

It’s the Berry Hill fingerless mittens by Liz Thompson.

The exact instructions are:
Cast on 40 stitches, divide evenly between the needles and join for knitting in the round. Place a stitch marker at the beginning of the round.


Rounds 1-4: *k1, tb1, p1, repeat from * to end of round.
Rounds 5-8: *p1, k1, tb1, repeat from * to end of round.

Rounds 9-32: repeat last 8 rounds three more times.

Here’s a link to the pattern with a picture for reference:

Duuhhhh. I was reading it wrong and so are you, there’s only 2 sts - k1 tbl, p1, repeat, and p1, k1 tbl and repeat. You knit the k1s through the back loop to twist them. You added commas where there aren’t any in the original.

I just saw it too! Haha, sorry for the false alarm, and thanks for the help! :stuck_out_tongue:
