Hi new here and need help please
I am not a new knitter but this pattern is odd. I can't seem to figure out the second row. I don't beleive there is an error as there has been no update on it.

And, what is the need for parentheses?

Step 1: Using US 9, cast on 42 stitches.

Step 2: K3 (p2 k2) to last 3 sts, p3.
Step 3: Work in ribbing until you have 4 rows total.



Step 2 makes no sense. There are not 3 stitches left to p3. 7 divides into 42 stitches evenly wth no leftovers.

You don't repeat the initial K3. You only repeat what is in the parenthesis.

Ohhh. I see.

So knit 3, and then k2,p2 to then end only and then p3.

I was thinking it was k3,k2p2,k3,k2,p2 etc.



Thank you so much.
