I’m working I the eyelets for the drawstrings that will close the bag.
The instructions are:
K2,* cast off 2, K4 (including the stitch already on the needle), repeat from * to last four stitches, cast off 2, K2

Do I knit 2 and then cast off 1, knit and cast off 1 ?
When it says knit 4 (including the stitch already on the needle). Does this mean I only knit 3?

Thanks in advance my yarn friends from afar.

You knit 2, then have to knit 2 more sts before beginning to cast off any stitches.
You then need to knit another st to be able to do the 2nd cast off.

Once you've cast off the 2 sts, you will then K3 for the next bit (as you will have 1 st on the needles after casting off)
Hope this makes sense

For the second part of I cast off 2 together from the 4 or k1 cast off, k1 cast off ?

It would be more usually written:

K2, * cast off 2, K3; repeat from * to last 4 stitches, cast off 2, K2.

You repeat the bolded part.

Perfect. Now I am knitting the 3 and k, cast off, knit, cast off, repeat.

Woohoo!!!

Does that make more sense?

What pattern are you using? It might be in "my collection" which has way more patterns than possible to knit in a lifetime but if I should need to know, which pattern is it so I can amend the directions? I've knitted some for a charity sale but quite a few years ago. The dolls I liked that fit perfectly and the store that sold them are gone.
