# Reading a pattern

by Carol
(Ma)

Question

If the pattern reads ( p1,k1,k2tog,k1) p1,k1,k2tog. Do I repeat the parenthesis or not?

Answer

Hi Carol,

Normally, when the pattern is written in parenthesis like this, it should also indicate number of time to repeat right after it. In this case I don't see the instruction to do so unless it mention elsewhere within the pattern instruction. Make sure to read all the pattern throughly before decide to continue with the project. Check you stitches to see how many you have and if they are correspondent to the instruction.
It looks to me like it should repeat. Something is missing here.

If it's possible, could you send me the whole pattern. I want to see the structure of it. That way I can tell you for sure what to do. I'm sorry I can't help you more.

Hope to hear from you soon.

 Apr 18, 2015 Rating Swirl Hat by: Ratchadawan I hope this is the right pattern. Here are part of the Swirl Hat pattern by Anne Heidemann "Row 40: (p1, k5) Row 41: (k1, p1, k4) Row 42: (k2, p1, k3) Row 43: k2tog, k1, p1, k2 (k2tog, k1, p1, k2) Row 44: (k3, p1, k1) Row 45: (k4, p1) Row 46: (p1, k1, k2tog, k1) p1, k1, k2tog" This is new to me that the designer didn't mention any thing about repeating patterns in the brackets. Sorry it took so long to get back to you, I didn't realize you'd left a comment here. So, to answer you question on row 43, you will repeat the (k2tog, k1, p1, k2) until the end of row. Same thing will other rows, only repeat the bracket parts. Thanks for submitting your question, Ratcha
