pattern help - patt 2 tog?
Hi everyone, I'm new here and looking for a little pattern help.

I have never run into this abbreviation, and I can't seem to find it on any knitting terminology websites or glossaries:

patt 2 / patt2tog

It's in a UK pattern. There is no pattern within the row, it's a very simple striped sweater, and I just have no idea what this means.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Usually p2tog would mean purl 2 together... but that's not what they meant?

I believe they mean to work 2 stitches in pattern and to work two together in pattern, meaning that if you're on a knit side, knit them, and if you're on a purl side, purl them.

Thank you!

That sounds reasonable, but it doesn't make too much sense in the pattern I'm doing, because it gives you directions pretty much row by row, and as I mentioned it's a simple stripe, knit 4 rows, purl 2 rows etc.

It makes sense though that "patt2tog" just means knit OR purl 2 together depending on what row you're on. If anyone else has more to say on this, feel free to ring in.
