Question on instructions
Hi, I have been knitting off and on for awhile, but just easy patterns. I seen this cap instructions on youtube with a link to download the pattern. It looked like something I would to try next that wasn't just a ribbed pattern like the hats I have knitted so far. Plus I could give it to my new Grandaughter.
But one part of the instructions I don't understand.
In the instructions below, I understand all but the "rep btwn".
I think the rep = repeat, but the "btwn", I am not sure what that means unless it's between, then I am not sure what you do on this round.
I looked in the abbreviations on here, but I didn't see it listed.
I did a search and the results were about between.

*P2, k3.* On this and every round rep btwn * to end.
Continue in rib pat next four rounds.

I tried to post the link to the pattern, but this is my first post, so it wouldn't let me.

Thank you
Harry

Hi, and welcome to Knitting Help. You're so close.... you repeat the stitches between the * * as many times as it takes to reach the end. Basically you can think in terms of a P2, k3 rib for 4 rounds. HTH

Congratulations on the new granddaughter!

Thank you GG, after reading your reply, it make perfect sense. Repeat between the astriks.
Whew, now I don't have to take out the rows I have completed.

Thanks again
Harry

Good. I'm glad it worked out. Frogging is often necessary but best avoided when possible. Enjoy knitting the hat for the new baby. You've 2 posts now, maybe you'd post a link so we can see what you're doing.

Welcome to Knitting Help and congratulations on your new granddaughter!

Glad to hear you're on the right track. Let us know how your hat turns out. Simple it may be, but I bet it's cute, and on the head of a baby (especially a granddaughter), it's going to be even cuter!

This is the link to the cap.
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...ding-gnome-cap
I wanted to try this cap because it looked a bit like it has cables without doing the cables.
With my next pattern I want to try cables, from the videos I have watched on how to do cables, I think I can do them. So I will try a hat or scarf with cables in the pattern.
