I knitting shawl for my mother. I don't know 2x and 3x in this pattern. If somebody know about this pattern could you please tell me how to knit 2x and 3x.
k4, yo, [ssk, yo] 3x, slk2p, yo, [k2tog, yo] 2x, k1, p1 [k1, yo, (ssk, yo) 2x, slk2p, yo, (k2tog, yo) 2x,k1, p1] to last 18 sts, k1, yo,[ssk, yo] 3x, slk2p, yo, [k2tog, yo] 2x, k4
Just work the bit in brackets 2 or 3 times. funny way to put it but thats what it means, so you work ssk,yo - 3 times and so on.
Hi! The x is short for 'times' so it is telling you how many times to repeat the section in [ ] or ( ). So for example you would start with:
k4, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, slk2p, yo, k2tog, yo k2tog, yo, k1, p1,
[k1, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, slk2p, yo, k2tog, yo, k2tog, yo, k1, p1] to last 18 stitches and finish with
k1, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, slk2p, yo, k2tog, yo, k2tog, yo, k4
Does that help?
