Hi Everyone - My name is Sarah and I’m new to knitting. There is a pattern I would like to try but I’m embarrassed to say I’m not sure what the pattern is telling me. I haven’t found any sites that explain all the instructions. The pattern is as follows:
Cast on 143 stitches (sts). Do not join. Working back and forth across needle in rows, proceed as follows:
1st row: [Wrong Side (WS)]. Knit.
2nd row: Knit 5 (K5). Purl to last 5 sts. K5.
3rd row: Knit.Step 2
Repeat (rep) these 6 rows for pattern (pat) until Blanket measures approximately 56” [142 cm], ending on a 2nd row of pat.Cast off knitwise (WS).
I don’t understand what “Knit.Step 2” is telling me and why it says repeat these 6 rows when it only shows 3? Can someone please explain?
