    @DebbieConroy i don’t understand your question. the pattern is done over 4 sts, but needs 3 sts at the end to make it even. so you would cast on 16 sts + 3 sts for 4 repeats or 20 + 3 for 5 repeats. Does that make sense?

    YES thank you so much. just getting my head checked. i called it rows and you call it repeats 🙂 love your classes!
