I’m currently finishing a hat for a friend, and the pattern I’m using seems to be a bit messy. There is an extra asterisk in the row that I’m knitting, so it’s throwing me for a loop. Here is the section of the pattern. The messy row is bolded.

Row 16: (dec)

p1, k1, p2, (k1, k2tog) 4 times, p2, k1, p1 k3togrepeatto5 times (85

stitches)

Row 17&18:(k1, p1) twice, k8, (p1, k1) 2 times, p1repeatto5 times

Row 19&20:p1, k1, p2, k8, p2, k1, p1 k1repeatto5 times

Row 21: (work cables)(k1, p1) twice, C4F, C4B, (p1, k1) 2 times, p1repeatto5 times

[B]Row 22: (dec) k1p1, k1, p1, k2, k2tog, k2tog, k2, p1, k1, p1, k3tog* repeatto5 times,

NB: include the first stitch of the next round into the last k3tog, reposition this stitch marker to

after this decreased stitch (65 stitches) [/B]

Row 23&24:k1, p2, k6, p2, k1, p1* repeatto5 times

Row 25: (work cables)p1, k1, p1 C3F, C3B, (p1, k1) twice* repeatto5 times

Row 26: (dec) p1,k1, p1, k1 k2tog, k2tog, k1, p1, k1, p3togrepeatto5 times, NB: include

the first stitch of the next round into the last p3tog, reposition this stitch marker to after this

decreased stitch (45 stitches)

Which asterisk do I repeat from? And I’m also not exactly sure how to include the first stitch of the next round into the last k3tog.

Much thanks.
