When following pattern instructions, you will find that some of them appear within brackets and some are marked with an asterisk. Along with the use of abbreviations, these help to shorten the amount of space needed for each pattern. Instructions that appear within brackets are to be repeated. For example, instead of writing 'p2, k2, p2, k2, p2, k2\ the pattern will simply say '(p2, k2) 3 times'. Asterisks (*) and other symbols (such as +] mark whole sets of instructions within a pattern that are to be repeated. For example, 'repeat from * to **' means repeat the instructions between the single asterisk and the double asterisks.
