I just need some help understanding the increase pattern because of the brakets that just have a number ( in bold). Work increases: Round 1: K1[0, 1], p1[0, 1], (k3, p1) 3[4, 4] times, k1, yo, p1, yo, k1, (p1, k3) 3[4, 4] times, p1[0, 1], k1[0, 1], p1; repeat once more to end of round. 68[76, 84] sts. Round 2: K1[0, 1], p1[0, 1], (k3, p1) 3[4, 4] times, k2, p1, k2, (p1, k3) 3[4, 4] times, p1[0, 1], k1[0, 1], p1; repeat once more to end of round. Round 3: K1[0, 1], p1[0, 1], (k3, p1) 3[4, 4] times, k2, yo, p1, yo, k2, (p1, k3) 3[4, 4] times, p1[0, 1], k1[0, 1], p1; repeat once more to end of round. 72[80, 88] sts. pattern: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer09/PATToutside.php Thanks 8) __________________ Hillary
