Crazy new knitter with an unintelligible fair isle pattern- please help!
Hello, I'm a new knitter , and my eyes are bigger than my skills are knowledgeable at this point, and I've decided to knit an "intermediate" fair isle sweater. In any event, now that I've learned a few basics, I've read the pattern a dozen times. I've decided to make a Medium in a pattern that has sizes from XS through XL (so, XS, S, M, L XL).

In any case, the initial cast on for the back of the sweater calls for the following number of stiches 85 (95, 107, 117, 129). Making the medium, I would cast on 107 stiches, correct?

Then, when I beg the snowflake pattern, Row 1 reads: K2 (7-5-2-0) M, *K1C, K7M, rep from * to last 3 (8-6-3-1) sts, K1C, K2 (7-5-2-0) M, where M is the main color and C is the secondary color. The bits in red have me confused... does this also correspond to the sizing? I understand that a certain number of the repeating snowflake patterns may fit in each size possibly, but I'm having trouble working out how the stitches play out in the snowflake bit. Any advice from someone who has done something like this before would be greatly appreciated! Thank you soo much!
