Welcome!

Are the brackets correct? Please check that because I've never seen a pattern written like that. If you can give us a pattern name and link it would help.

Sorry I missed a bracket. The instructions for the entire row are as follows:

[P1,k1] 3 times,[p3[k2,p3]3 times] 4 times,[p1,k1]3 times

Thanks for your help. I don't have a link as it is from a book.

Here's how to read it: Anything in brackets is repeated the number of times given. [P1,k1] 3 times means repeat the p1, k1 three times. The brackets inside other brackets are done first so for the next part you will p3 then [k2,p3] three times, then repeat the whole thing starting with p3 three times more for a total of four repeats. By now you figured out that the [p1,k1] will be repeated 3 times.

HTH Learning to read these instructions is challenging and even more experienced knitters get stuck.

Now if I actually typed it all out right.....

What'cha knittin'?

ok, this one is p1, k2, then p5, k2, p5, k2, repeat from beginning.

you're doing the [p5, k2] twice in a row AFTER the initial p1, k2.
