Reading a pattern
If the pattern reads ( p1,k1,k2tog,k1) p1,k1,k2tog. Do I repeat the parenthesis or not?
Normally, when the pattern is written in parenthesis like this, it should also indicate number of time to repeat right after it. In this case I don't see the instruction to do so unless it mention elsewhere within the pattern instruction. Make sure to read all the pattern throughly before decide to continue with the project. Check you stitches to see how many you have and if they are correspondent to the instruction.
It looks to me like it should repeat. Something is missing here.
If it's possible, could you send me the whole pattern. I want to see the structure of it. That way I can tell you for sure what to do. I'm sorry I can't help you more.
Hope to hear from you soon.
