Another “newbie” question again.
I’m trying to teach myself to read patterns, and while there seems to be a universal language of sorts, sometimes I see variants.
I’m not sure how to read something like this; it’s for a simple winter hat.
I’m not sure what the numbers all mean, for example, the “52(34”. And then repeat round 1?
Could someone help and explain a bit more?
Original Pattern Instructions:
Using the long-tail cast-on method, cast-on 66(44) and join to work in the round.
Round 1: [K1, P1]. Repeat all the way around.
Round 2 – 52(34) : Repeat round 1.
Note: Every row should begin with a Knit stitch and finish with a Purl stitch.
Round 53(35) : K1 [Dec, K1]. Repeat all the way around.
Round 54(36): K1 [Dec]. Repeat all the way around.
Round 55(37): K all the way around.
