Understanding a pattern
My pattern says SSK K6 until 4-0-4-0-4 st remain. I know it’s slip slip knit then knit for 6 but what does the 4-0-4 bit mean?
Also on most videos the slip slip knit shows the needle going in from the front but my pattern says to go from the back. Can you do it both ways ?
This is my first attempt at knitting a hat.
Thanks for your help.
