Asked in Crocheting and Knitting
What does an asterisk mean in knitting patterns?
Asterisks indicate a section of the instructions that will be repeated. For example, with the instruction below:
K2, *P1, K1* repeat 2 times, P1, K2
You will actually be doing this:
K2, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K2 (the bolded stitches are the ones from inside the asterisks)
