I got a pattern online and this is what it says:
This ribbed scarf is a fairly quick knit. I did it over a weekend in my spare time and had it finished and tassled almost exactly when the snow started to melt on Monday. But Man! was my neck warm
Materials: dk weight alpaca, doubled
US #10 needles
Cast On 34 stitches
Row 1 and 3: Slip 1, Purl 1, *Knit 2, Purl 2* until end
Row 2 and 4: Slip 1, Knit 1, *Purl 2, Knit 2* until end
Row 5: Slip 1, Purl 1, *Knit 2 Together without slipping sts from needle, then k first st again, drop sts off of needle, Purl 2* until end
Row 6: Slip 1, Knit 1, *Purl 2, Knit 2 Tog as above*until last two stitches, Knit 2
Continue this until 5 feet or desired length.
Then tassle the heck out of it - I did 9 times on each side to be exact
i got the right yarn and needles and im just confuse what does * mean in the pattern? and for the 5 and 6... can someone help clear it up??
Thanks in advance
