working on Berroco Drift
PATTERN STITCH (Worked over 38 sts)
Row 1 (RS): P2, k2, (p2, k1TBL) twice, (p2, k2) 4 times, (p2, k1TBL) twice, p2, k2, p2.
Row 2: K2, p2, (k2, p1TBL) twice, (k2, p2) 4 times, (k2, p1TBL) twice, k2, p2, k2.
Row 3: P2, k2, (p2, k1TBL) twice, (p2, k2, p2) twice, p2, k2, (p2, k1TBL) twice, p2, k2, p2.
Row 4: K2, p2, (k2, p1TBL) twice, (k2, p2, k2) twice, k2, p2, (k2, p1TBL) twice, k2, p2, k2.
Rep these 4 rows for Pat St.
BACK
With smaller straight needles, cast on 98(106-118-126-138-146) sts.
Establish Pat St: Row 1 (RS): K0(2-0-0-0-0), (p2, k2) 1(1-3-4-5-6) times, place marker, work Row 1 of Pat St over 38 sts, place marker, k2, (p2, k2) 3(4-4-4-5-5) times, place marker, work Row 1 of Pat St over 38 sts, place marker, (k2, p2) 1(1-3-4-5-6) times, k0(2-0-0-0-0).
Row 2: P0(2-0-0-0-0), (k2, p2) 1(1-3-4-5-6) times, work Row 2 of Pat St to next marker, p2, (k2, p2) 3(4-4-4-5-5) times, work row 2 of Pat St to next marker, (p2, k2) 1(1-3-4-5-6) times, p0(2-0-0-0-0). Work even in pat as established until piece measures 2 1/2 from beg, end on RS. Change to larger needles.



"Work even in pat as established until piece measures 2 1/2 from beg, end on RS." Does this mean that I repeat those 2 beginning rows or should I do the 2 rows while also doing the 4 rows of the "Pattern Stitch"?

Work these 2 rows and work the 4 rows of the pattern stitches when it calls for the 'pattern stitches over 38 stitches'.

Thanks for your reply and I feel really dense, but the first 2 rows say specifically "work row 1 and work row 2 in pattern stitch". There's no mention of rows 3 and 4. Later, when the 2 1/2 inches is done then it says "Work in pattern stitch". Should I just repeat the first 2 rows for the 2 1/2 inches?

It's as Ingrid says, the 4 rows of the pattern stitch are placed in the actual sweater according to the directions for rows 1 and 2 but as you repeat row 1 and 2, you'll continue with the 4 row pattern stitch. You had the right idea in your question:

"Work even in pat as established until piece measures 2 1/2 from beg, end on RS." Does this mean that I repeat those 2 beginning rows or should I do the 2 rows while also doing the 4 rows of the "Pattern Stitch"?

So it would be
row 1 with row 1 of pattern stitch
row 2 with row 2 of pattern stitch
row 1 with row 3 of pattern stitch
row 2 with row 4 of pattern stitch

Very pretty pattern.

No, it means you work those two rows once, in the beginning, and than work the pattern stitch - the 4 rows of it - until your item measures... something, 2.5", whatever that is.
