In the pattern I am working with striaght needles, and I have cast on my 75 stitches. Nowever, I do not understand two rows in my pattern. Can someone please tell me what it means, step by step? Row 1(RS): K1, *[k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1] in next st, p5; rep from * to last 2 sts, end k2 Row 9: K2, *p5, [k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1] in next st; rep from * to last st, end k1 *****Note: I understand what K, P, yo, sts, and etc is, I just don't understand how to repeat..for example, in Row one I don't understand if I do the stuff in the brackets first, then p5, then repeat brackets till the last stitch..or....?***
