Each row indicates “repeat from *” but no other asterisk is present in the row instructions.

I think I’m a good good at knitting but I do find the explanation a bit complicated. Can you tell me what ply wool in we need Australia
Many thanks I really want to knit the scarf

Hi Susan. I am not sure about ply as i do not use this system. I do not think it matters for the scarf a lot. Choose yarn that has 90-100 meters per 50 gramms ball

Wish you would do English style. I am lost as you know what. The yarn over is confusing.

Sorry to hear it but how it can be confusing. Just make a yarn over with English style, I do not think it differs.

Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! At first, I thought it was a simple cable pattern, but was excited to discover it was brioche! I have tried brioche in the past, but could never understand the directions. Your video was excellent; your instructions were clear and I love the cable pattern! You made my day! ☺️
