“End last rep” – what does it mean?

Dear SweaterBabe, 

Greetings… Uggg….I am stuck and do not know what to do. My pattern reads; Row 2: * K1, yo, k3, sl1, k2tog, psso, k3, yo, rep from * across (I understand this part), end last rep k1 (this is what I I am stuck on, I do not understand….I end my last yo, but then I am able to k1, yo, and then k2). I would greatly appreciate the help on what to do. Thank you for your time,

— Patricia

Dear Patricia,

When it says “end last rep k1”, it should mean “end last rep with k1 instead of k3, yo”.  It should always be the very last part of the instruction that is different just for the last rep.  (Assuming a well-written, standard pattern!)

That being the case, I’m afraid you might have worked your row incorrectly or have the wrong number of sts if you are getting to the end of your row and still have enough to do k1, yo, k2, instead of just k1. 

I would suggest double checking the number of sts you have and making sure you are doing the “K1, yo, k3, sl1, k2tog, psso, k3, yo, rep from * across” correctly.

If neither of those suggestions fix your problem, then I would wonder if the pattern is just not well written…

My only other interpretation is that you are able to do a complete rep from *, then you still have one st leftover, which you can do your k1 with.  If this is the correct interpretation, then I believe it should have been written “end k1”, instead of “end last rep k1”.

Hope it works out!

    There is a section of the Lush and Lacy cardigan pattern that has me confused. Please help. I am stymied by how to count these rows. I began the “Lace panel bordered by Rev St…” section on the pattern back on row 39 so how do I count the rows for this next section?

    Cont in patts as established, and AT THE SAME TIME increasing 2 sts by working a “pinc”
    into the outermost st within each Rev St st panel on the next 7th row (MY QUESTION-which row number is this?), then every
    8th row 3 times = 73 (77, 81, 85, 89) sts.(MY QUESTION-which row numbers are these?),
    Cont in patts as established through Row 75 (9 more rows) or until piece measures 13 ¼”
    [33.5 cm] from beg, ending with a WS row.

    Please help
