So, if I am reading this right, row 3 -24 you repeat row 1 and 2 11 more times. So Row 3 I would do row 1 and row 4 do row 2 and so on and do that 11 times which would actually be a total of 231 rows if I do that 11 times? Begin Basketweave Pattern Row 1: (K1, p1) twice, k1, p18, *k18, p18; rep from * to last 5 sts, (k1, p1) twice, k1. Row 2: (K1, p1) twice, k1, knit to last 5 sts, (k1, p1) twice, k1. Rows 3-24: Rep last 2 rows 11 more times. Thanks, to anyone helping clear this brain!Lisa

So with the 2 rows you started with that will give you the 24 rows. __________________ Jan NEW! KH knitting video archive ~HOW TO POST A PHOTO~

Row 3 (do row 1) Row 4 (do row 2) Row 5 (do row 1) Row 6 (do row 2) And I do this way for the rest of row7 to 24. Okay so that adds up to 22 rows (3-24). Light bulb when you said with the first 2 already done that would be 24. Duh, told you I think too much. Thanks, I understand after I sat here typing this.

Good grief here I go again. You say it adds 22 rows, but doesn't the "do 11 more times" mean I actually will do 3-24 11 times not just the 1 time through? This is for an afghan.and the pattern is only a 48 row pattern, that would not be long enough for an afghan.

I suspect there are directions for row 25 and beyond. Since this is a basketweave pattern, I'd think that you have to reverse the stitches at some point. __________________ "Trust the pattern!"

It is a bulky yarn so I guess it will be longer than I was picturing when I had not bothered to see it is all worked a total of 3 times. Sorry for the confusing but I appreciate you both answering me.
