Help please. “Continue in pattern”

by Elaine
(Scotland )

Hello, I’m knitting a waistcoat, I’ve confused myself, please can you help. I’ve just done row 19.

I’m not sure what “ Rows 20 to 34: Continue in pattern for 15 rows”, means. Does it mean repeat the row I’ve just done, 19?
Or, is “the pattern” the woven stitch ? Which is repeating rows 1 and 2? So I now need to continue with row 2 ? The size I’m making is the 4th one along in the brackets. Ie. Row 19 I now have 289 sts.
I just can’t see how I get to Row 35 and have 301 on my needle.

continue in pattern

Hi Elain,

Wow, you could really get lost in this pattern. I knitted a sample and it looks pretty.

For row 20 to 34 you just keep your pattern going just as you did from row 3-6. You'll gain 12 sts once you get to row 35 and then 2 more after completing row 35. You should have 301 sts just like it says.

Thank you for visiting and questioning. Enjoy the rest of the evening!
