Pattern stitch ( multiple of 12 sts + 6)

Hi, I am new to knitting and I have a pattern for a scarf. Well, the first thing it says is {pattern stitch ( multiple of 12 sts + 6) } what does that mean?

Thanks in advance,

You can use this stitch on a multiple of 12 sts (12, 24, 36, etc) plus you’ll need 6 more. So the stitch number would be 18, 30, 42, etc.

Thank you,

I may be on here a lot since I am just learning.:slight_smile:

That’s fine. You’re welcome to post as often as you want.
