I am working on a knitted pattern. At the end of the row instructions is KO(2,1). I'm not familiar with these notes.

Can you break down what this means?

YOUR ANSWER



Hi Barbara.

I am assuming that your pattern has 3 sizes?

Usually when you see something like this in a pattern, it is a kind of shorthand so that the designer can provide the instructions for all three sizes.

In this case it means for the smallest size don't knit any stitches (i.e.knit 0), for the middle size, knit 2 stitches and knit 1 stitch for the largest size.

Hope this helps...
