Do you repeat only what is in the parenthesis that amount of times? and then repeat from the * that amount of times? __________________ Dianenv

A stitch sequence in () will have the number of times you do it afterward. And what's between the *s will also be repeated, either a set number or times or all the way across the row.. So in your example, the row is - K1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1; *yo DVC yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, repeat from * 6 times, then finish up yo, DVC, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1. __________________ sue- knitting heretic
