    Hi I’m new to kntting and I was wondering what do you mean wben you say 2+1?

      The 2 + 1 is broken down like this:

      The first number is your pattern repeat. That is the number of stitches it takes to make one instance of the pattern. You will multiply this repeat as many times as necessary to create a piece of fabric that is of your desired length. So say you wanted a fabric that was big enough for a scarf using worsted weight yarn and you want 10 repeats of the pattern, you would cast on 20 stitches (10 repeats X 2 stitches per repeat).

      The second number is added to even out the pattern, often to make it symmetrical. In this case you’d add 1 extra stitch, bringing your total stitches in our example to 21.

      Does that make sense?
