Hi,

Thanks for the question.

k3(1:-:4:2:-)

The numbers in side parenthesis indicate numbers of knit stitch of five different sizes available in this pattern.

You have followed your size all along until now. You can tell which position your size stands. So, you can choose how many k you have to do.
smallest size k3, next size up k1, next size up k 0, next size up k4 and so forth.

I hope this helps answer your question.

Ratcha
