If instructions say (P1, K1) twice, P1, *k2, (P1, K1) twice, P1, repeat from *, what exactly should you do?

Knitting Pattern Interpretation

Hi Suzanne,

Here is what you do with "(P1, K1) twice, P1, *k2, (P1, K1) twice, P1, repeat from * ";

(P1,k1, p1, k1), p1, *k2, (p1, k1, p1, k1), p1. Then you will repeat from * which is "k2, (p1, k1, p1, k1), p1". you keep repating this pattern set until the instruction tells you to stop. if this all the instruction you have for this row, the you will repeat it until the end of your row/round.

I hope this helps and thank you for visiting!
