I’m very new to knitting and have decided recently to teach myself and knit a blanket. I’m having some trouble understanding part of pattern so any advice would be really appreciated.
The part I’m struggling on is:
P18, p2tog, (p6, p2tog) 31 times, p18. 254 Sts
I understand how to do a purl stitch and purl 2 together but what exactly is this row asking me to do? Do I need to do the part in the brackets or is that just the same as the first bit? Also what is the 254 sts as in what type of stitches?
Thank you in advance!!
