Been lurking for quite a while and have found the website really useful. I'm 25 and I'm a relatively new knitter - started about 4 months ago but am really loving it. I have managed to make simple things so far like blankets, jumpers, hats, scarves etc but today, have started to adventure into the world of cabling. I'm making a tea cosy for a friend (her request) and there is a bit in the pattern that has confused me: 1st row : K1, * k2, p2; repeat from * until 3 remain, k3 2nd row : K1, p2; * k2, p2; repeat from * until 1 remains, k1. Repeat these two rows six times more. ** Cable row: K3, * p2, cable 6; repeat from * until 5 sts remain, p2, k3 Work the second row again, then the 1st and 2nd rows 3 times more Repeat from ** for depth required to the top of your teapot, then work the 1st and 2nd rows again. Now I have done the cable row for the first time and know that I need to do the second row and the 1st and 2nd rows 3 more times, but when it says repeat from **, do I just do the cable rows or do I do the second row and 1st and 2nd rows again? I'm not sure. Thanks and I look forward to getting to 'know' some of you.

This is the part you repeat. Cable row: K3, * p2, cable 6; repeat from * until 5 sts remain, p2, k3 Work the second row again, then the 1st and 2nd rows 3 times more __________________ sue- knitting heretic
