help reading pattern
I am new to knitting, and still find patterns hard to read. For instance, what does this mean?
*K4 (5,6), p4, k4, p4, k4 (5,6); rep from * around

It means you will knit 4 (or 5, or 6 depending on the size you chose), purl 4, knit 4, purl 4, knit 4 (or 5, or 6 depending on the size you chose). Then you would repeat those stitches from the * to the end of your yarn on your needle. Did that make it clearer?
