I’m knitting the Palethorp Shawl and had a question about the pattern repeat.
The pattern has a stitch guide that goes like this:
Cat’s Eye (multiple of 4 sts. temporarily increasing to multiple of 6 sts + 4)
(There are four rows in the Cat’s Eye pattern listed here.)
Rep Rows 1-4 for pattern.
The pattern starts with a setup row on the WS, where a marker is placed, then shows the following:
Increase row (RS): Work Cat’s Eye pattern to marker, then knit to end. (abbreviated since it isn’‘t relevant to question)
Next row (WS): Knit to marker, then work pattern to end. (abbreviated since it isn’'t relevant to question)
Continue in pattern, rep the shaping of the last 2 rows 198 more times, then work 1 more RS row, working new sts in St st.
My question is concerning the “continue in pattern, rep the shaping of the last 2 rows 198 more times”
Does this mean I do NOT repeat rows 1-4 of the Cat’s eye pattern 198 times, but instead, after I do the first 4 rows of the Cat’s eye pattern, I then only repeat rows 3 and 4 of the Cat’s eye pattern 198 times, no longer doing Rows 1 & 2 of cat’s eye pattern?
Thanks for any help!
