Knitting question

Hi.:grinning: I was wondering what does in pattern mean in gauge?
Can someone break it down for me?:thinking:

โ€œIn patternโ€ means working whatever the project pattern stitch is. It might be stockinette, lace, cable, seed, whatever; continue working in that specified pattern stitch.

Hi Salmonmac.:grinning:Thanks for the amazing help.:slightly_smiling_face:
