Need help with UK Pattern Instructions
Working on a downton hat from knitsofacto on ravelery and having a hard time with the instructions.

Row 1 (RS)(K2, P2) repeat to last 0 (2,0,2,0,2) stitches, K0 (2,0,2,0)

So - what does:
"to the last 0"
"(2,0,2,0,2) stitches
K0

Mean??

I'm not a complete novice, but this just isn't iconography I'm used to.

The different numbers are the sts to work for the different sizes. So if your size has a 0, do nothing. Ignore that instruction and go on to the next one. It's not just UK patterns that are written this way either, many US ones have this notation.

Thanks Suzeeq - I thought it needed to have something to do with sizes, but it just seemed weird that it would alternate like that rather than go up or down per the size. Any thoughts on K0 or repeat to the last 0?

Hi and welcome! Where it says repeat to the last 0 sts or knit 0, there'll be nothing for you to do. You'll end the row P2.

It has to do with the number of stitches for each size. Don't overthink it, it'll work out right for your size.
