I am just starting a blanket pattern using a Bernat blanket yarn (horseshoe cable blanket ) after finishing the second row it says to repeat the last2 rows(k2p2) ribbing with garter edges for 4 inches …however the last two rows are k4*p2k2 and k2p2 I am confused ?
Have no idea how to proceed with row 3 ??

1st row: (RS). K4. P2. K2. Rep from to last 2 sts. K2.
2nd row: *K2. P2. Rep from * to last 2 sts. K2. Rep last 2 rows (K2.P2) ribbing with garter edges for
4"
The 2 rows will have 2 sts at each end that are always knit. That is the garter stitch edge that the pattern is referring to. The rest of these rows is k2p2 rib.

I still don’t get it …what will my 3rd row be ? K4 p2k2 ??

Yes, the odd number rows will be the same as row 1 and the even number rows will be the same as row 2. Keep repeating until you’ve knit 4 inches. End after having completed a row 1.

4th row k2 p2 ? And row5 k4p2k2 ?

Hello!!

You keep knitting Row 1 and Row 2 over and over:

So you will knit
Row 1
Row 2
Row 1
Row 2
Row 1

Until u complete whatever length they say.
