 Ok, bear with me I'm a very green knitter-
I am confused by the instructions for the valentine's hat (page 57)- can someone explain to me what the instructions in the parentheses are? I'm honestly lost! I thought that instructions in parentheses where for alternate sizes.  And no matter what I do I can't get my 9 sts to end up as the indicated 15 sts.

Also, (brace for dumb question) is there significance the use of the words 'Next row' rather than 'Next rnd' in this pattern? The instructions flip back and forth, though I'm supposedly working in the round... arrg.
 
Anybody?

I think the stuff in the parantheses tells you specifically how you're supposed to increase to reach the final number of stitches. They aren't alternate directions for a different size because there's only one size. See what I mean?

So the  "(inc1, inc1, k1) two times" means do the parantheses TWICE before following the next set of directions.

And the whole flip-flop directions? I think the part about rows is flat directions for parts of the mittens.

Hey thanks!

duh.  Tongue

What was screwing me up was that I kept trying to repeat what came directly before the parentheses, I have no idea why... This is the maybe 3rd pattern I've tried to followand the first I've seen that in.

thanks again!
