need help reading a repeat ** in pattern Ballet wrap top
Patons C4664 by coats crafts
I am knitting a ballet top for my niece and have a repeat instruction - normally I don't have a problem understanding this. here are the instructions
rib row 1 (rs) *k1, p1; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2
rib row 2 *k1, p1; rep from * to end
**rep these 2 rows for 5 cm ending with row 1
I am not sure if I should be doing the k2 at the end of rib row 1 when I am repeating the pattern in a way it would make sense as it might be the edging as would be where cardi buttons would go but then I am not sure as I am thinking it might upset the rib pattern throughout.
I know I could contact coats, but it's the weekend and I would really like to get started on this.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated
