Knitting Service Announcement
If the instructions read, "*P1, K19* repeat 4 times more, P1", this should not be interpreted as, *P1, K19, P1* repeat 4 times more." Doing a second round just to make sure it's wrong is inadvisable.
If a pattern reads, "*P1, K19* repeat 4 times more, P1", then you need to do a total of 5 repeats, not 4. Knitting six more rows this way while wondering why the front pattern is so narrow will not make it right.
Knitterly Intuition should ALWAYS be listened to.
An ice cream cone will not make 1,548 incorrectly knitted stitches seem any less daunting.
