Pattern Problems
Hi,
I'm just learning how to needle knit & I'm having trouble reading the pattern. I've looked everywhere online, but can't seem to find anything about this particular issue.

Cast on 11 stitches.
Row 1: purl.
Row 2: K1, (m1, K1) to end--21 stitches.

In row 2, am I supposed to repeat from "K1, (m1, K1)", or just "(m1, K1)"?
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm teaching myself, & was going pretty good, up until I hit this particular wall.
Can someone help a newbie knitter out

This isn't a stupid question, you're merely unfamiliar with how patterns are written. You only repeat the part inside ( ). You will k1, m1, k1, m1 and continue to the end of the row.

Congratulations on learning a new skill! Feel free to ask any questions you have. What'cha knittin'? If you can link to the pattern, that's always helpful. We also get to see it and we like that too.

Thanks, GrumpyGramma,
I've been trying to figure that out for days
It's a teddy bear. I'm getting the pattern from the book "The Best-Dressed Knitted Bear" by Emma King, & I'm making the "simple small bear". It's one of my first real projects on needles. It's really cute
Thanks for all your help
