I am new to this forum and new to knitting. I have long wanted to learn and am finally in a class and am totally addicted.
I have run into a snag in reading our latest pattern and I can’t reach my instructor. Can anyone please help? Here it is:
Chevron Pattern (for a washcloth)
Cast on 49 stitches (no problem there)
Knit 5 rows in Seed stitch (ditto)
Work 3 pattern repeats (???)
Work rows 1-8 once more
Here is my question: to work “3 pattern repeats” does that mean 3 more rows in seed stitch? If so, why not simply write the pattern as Knit 8 rows in seed stitch? If not, what do they mean?
Thanks so much! One of the neatest things about learning to knit is learning an entirely new language but I am still a novice
