HI
I am trying to knit a flower and I don't understand the instructions! It says:
K1 *cast off 2 stitches (1 st rem on right needle) rep from *to end.

I don't understand what it is telling me to do??

Knit 1
Then you have to knit 2 more stitches in order to cast off 1. Knit another stitch for your second cast off, cast that one off. (you have 2 stitches on your needle)

Do the same thing again, K1 ... knit 2 and cast one off, knit one and cast that one off ... you should have 4 stitches on your needle

are you sure, that you have the * placed right there?

If you knit 1, then cast off 2, then knit 1 and so on that is different then when you knit 1, then cast off 2, cast off 2, cast off 2... you know? That would be a strange instruction, somehow.

Is there a link to this pattern? That would help.

You are right .. I was reading it with the * before the K1 !!!! The way it is written would be very odd instructions, for sure !
