# How to read pattern k4. (k2tog)twice

by Anonymous Knitter

Question

I knitted 4 stitches, then knit 2 stitches together, then knit 2 stitches together, it didn't turn out right.

Should I have just knit 2 stitches together, twice?

You said "k4. (k2tog)twice"
I'm just wondering if you meant k4, (comma) instead of k4. (dot)
If this were k4, (k2tog) twice then you would do k4 then k2tog twice.
If it is the way it is with k4. (k2tog)twice, then you just k2tog twice without k4.

Would you mind sending me a few rows of the pattern? I want to see how it's written.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Ratcha

 Jan 13, 2021 Rating *k2tog twice, [yo, k1] 4 times, k2tog, repeat from * across. by: Anonymous My pattern says *k2tog twice, [yo, k1] 4 times, k2tog, repeat from * across. Does this mean 1: 4(k2tog, then k2tog), then (yo, and k1), then (k2tog and k2tog), and then (k2tog and k2tog)? or does it mean 2: 4(k2tog, yo, k1, k2tog, yo, k1), then (k2tog, and k2tog)? Shouldn't I be doing option 1 with an additional (yo, and k1) so i don't lose two stitches every time i have to repeat this pattern?
