I am having difficulty with an afghan that I am knitting. I keep trying to knit this line and it does not come out. Instructions are as follows:
[P7 K1 YO K2 tog K4] twice (I get this ) here is the confusing part * {P 13,(K1, YO, K2 tog K4, P7)twice} K1, YO, K2tog, K4; repeat from * once more, then repeat from { to } once. I had to cast on 165 stiches. i think that I am suppoused to end with P7 but I never do. Sorry if I have confused anyone but I could use some help.

Oh.. I can see how that could get confusing.

Ok, according to the pattern: "* {P 13,(K1, YO, K2 tog K4, P7)twice} K1, YO, K2tog, K4; repeat from * once more, then repeat from { to } once"

You should do the following:

P13, K1, YO, K2 together, K4, P7, K1, YO, K2 together, K4, P7, K1, Yo, K2tog, K4. Repeat this whole sequence. Then P13, K1, YO, K2tog, K4, P7, K1, YO, K2tog, K4, P7.

It's like reading an algebra problem in a way. LOL
