P2, [KB1] 3 times, *p3, KB1, p3 [KB1] 3 times; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2. I get the p2 part, I'm confused about the 3 times part. If you could explain this line to me I would be everlastingly grateful. Thanks so much!

So in this case - P2, [KB1] 3 times,= P2, KB1, KB1, KB1 This next part you repeat everything between the asterisks across to the last two stitches while continuing to to do the KB1 3 times for the second one in the group... *p3, KB1, p3 [KB1] 3 times; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2.= p3, KB1,, p3, KB1, KB1, KB1, p3, KB1, p3, KB1, KB1, KB1....etc to last two stitches then p2. What are you making?? __________________ Jan When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it. NEW! KH knitting video archive ~HOW TO POST A PHOTO~
