Hi,
Could someone help me make sense of this pattern please? I have a problem with brackets!
I have 60 stitches and I am making the last size,and the row reads:
K6 [2:5:1:3], (yfwd, yrn, p1, p3tog, p1, yon, k2) 3 [5:5:7:7] times, yfwd, yrn, p1, p3tog, p1, yon, k6 [ 2:5:1:3].

So does this mean I k3, then do the first bit in brackets 7 times, then the last bit 3 times?
I think I have included the k3 at the start of each repeat and if I carry on like this I will run out of stitches won't I?

Hope someone can help please

K3, (yfwd, yrn, p1, p3tog, p1, yon, k2) 7 times, yfwd, yrn, p1, p3tog, p1, yon, k3

This is what you need for your row. You will use 60 stitches to complete it.

K3, (yfwd, yrn, p1, p3tog, p1, yon, k2) 7 times, yfwd, yrn, p1, p3tog, p1, yon, k3.

Knit 3, do the sts in parentheses 7 times and the end with yfwd, yrn, p1, p3tog, p1, yon, k3.

Wow what a quick response! Thanks so much. Am off to bed now as it is 23:20 here in England but guess what I will be cracking on with tomorrow once I've got the kids off to school :yay:
