Need some help please!
Hi guys,

Just started knitting and wondered about what k1 [2:0:1] means, I know what K1 means but not sure about the [2:0:1] means?

Can anyone help?
Much appreciated

The numbers inside [ ] are for different sizes. For the smallest size you knit 1, for the next size, knit 2, etc. It's helpful to circle the numbers for the size you're making to recognize them quickly and easily and reduce confusion and errors.

It does seem weird when the third size says k0, but that's just the way it works sometimes. Give it a try and ask away if you eed more help!

Welcome to Knitting Help!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
