Instruction help
Maybe I am reading too much into this and just confusing me more.
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

Yes, that is what you do, but it'll add 22 rows if you do it 11 times. So with the 2 rows you started with that will give you the 24 rows.

Um now I am still confused.
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.

You work a total of 24 rows for this section.

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.

Yes you do reverse later and then if I had bothered to finish reading the instructions I would have seen after you do 48 rows, you repeat 1-48 2 more times. 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.
