I'm confused ... :thinking: ... I don't see any *'s in the pattern as you quoted it. Here's my guess
Row1: K1, *YO twice, K1, rep from* across.
Row2: K1, *drop YO, K1, rep from* across.
I just wouldn't end w/ a YO. I've seen patterns that do end w/ YO, but I don't think it applies to your pattern 'cause it sounds like elongated st to me.
Hope that helps a little
