I am working from a Rowan knitting pattern for a man’s zipper.
This is the instruction for the back
With No. 8 (4 mm) needles, cast on 127 (135) sts.
1st rib row: P1, k1, p1 to end.
2nd rib row: K1, p1, k1 to end.
Repeat last 2 rows, 7 times more.
Change to No. 7 (41/2 mm) needles. Work main pattern thus:
1st row: P3, k1, p3 to end.
2nd row: K3, p1, k3 to end.
Mark ends of last row for side seams. Pattern another 50 (52) rows.
Cast off straight across.“
50 (52) rows will only measure approx 30cm.
Does “Pattern another 50 (52) rows.” mean repeat both rows, ie work 100 (104) rows?
Thank you for your help
