Here's how it's done...
First, cut the chart here:


Keep this piece:


Tape the pieces together, for whatever number of repeats you need. This modified piece below adds 2 repeats to the total, or two additional motifs than the original chart. Note> on the far right is the original chart....partly covered over...then the two extra pieces are taped on the left:



Here is the original chart, but I've color-coded the symbols for easier knitting.


I hope I don't get into trouble for posting these modified charts to help us understand how the repeat works.

Here is the original link to the webpage that features this old pattern stitch. You can view the written there, and if you sign up and join , you can view the chart key that unlocks the meaning of each symbol.

All in all, it's a great website. They have a sweater generator, that works much like The Sweater Wizard software.
