knitting pattern abbreviations
I am still new to knitting, and I am having trouble deciphering pattern abbreviations for the hat I'm making. What does this mean? (I understand the ssk - just not what to do with the parantheses and brackets):
*ssk, p1 [k2, p2] 1 (2, 4)x, k2, k2tog*. repeat around

I cast on 64 stitches, and I believe I'm supposed to end up with 56 after this round?

Whatever is in brackets will be repeated as many times indicated in the parentheses for your size.

So you will k2,p2 either 1, 2 or 4 times depending on whether you're making small, med or lg.
