Hi all… It’s been AGES since I posted and that is because for this entire pregnancy I’ve been unable to even look at wool because it’s made me feel ill. Luckily, it seems to be getting better lately and I’ve started knitting a baby hat for the upcoming arrival.
However, just as I’m getting stuck back into it I’ve come across a problem. I’ve never come across a pattern that reads this way before and I’m confused. I was wondering if somebody could please help me out?
The pattern reads like this:
1st Rnd: Purl
Repeat 1st round twice
4th Rnd: *K1, P1, rep from * to end
5th Rnd: *P1, K1, rep from * to end
Last 2 rounds form Moss St patt for hat
Cont in patt until work measures 8 cm from beg
[color=red]All of this is simple and straight forward. The next part is what confuses me[/color]
1st rnd: * Patt 6, (patt 2tog) twice, patt 5, rep from * to end… 70 sts
Work 3 rnds patt
The bit in bold is the part I don’t get… how on EARTH do I pattern two together twice? Does that mean K2tog, P2tog twice? I’m so confused and I don’t want to mess it up…
I should add that I’m doing this hat on DPN’s. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!
