Reverse Pattern

My pattern reads:
Rows 1-4: K1, * P1, K1 rep from * across.
Rows 5 & 7: Knit
Rows 6 & 8: Purl
Then when I reach the middle of the back it tells me to reverse pattern.
Does that mean:
Rows 1 & 3: Knit
Rows 2 & 4: Purl
Rows 5 -8: K1, P1 K1 rep from * across.

Just want to be sure I am doing this right. Thanks

I think it means after you reach the middle to do this:

Rows 1-4: P1, *K1, P1 rep from * across.
Rows 5 & 7: Purl
Rows 6 & 8:Knit

Do you have a picture you can refer to?

Yes, Katrina is right. You’ll use the same repeats on the rows, but reverse the stitches so that knits are now purls and visa versa.

You’re creating a mirror image.

The only part where I disagree is here:

Rows 1-4: P1, *K1, P1 rep from * across.

To reverse the pattern it should read:

Rows 1-4 K1, P1 rep from to next to last stitch, then P1.

How is that reversing the original which is “K1, * P1, K1 rep from * across”? I think starting with the purl stitch is right as in “P1, *K1, P1 rep from * across”

I misunderstood what I was reading. My bad.

MG was correct. I was thinking working two different sides of the back, not working all the way across the back.

By reaching the middle I am now understanding it as reaching the middle length-wise not across, in which case MG was exactly right.

Reading is fundamental :rofl:

Did you mean reading was…

fund-a-mental

:roflhard:

Gee, I think I would have done …

pay no mind to the ‘-’ in the middle, it is only a stitch marker.

P.S. I realized I had it upside down… now it is right side up. I think. :think:

:eyebrow2: I can picture why they would want a reverse pattern on the top half of the back vs the bottom half.

Oh, :doh: it would be eight rows of st st making a band across the middle of the back (height wise). I can see that now. Just a bit slow with the visual today. :wink:

Good Crossed Fingers luck!
