Question
I have a pattern that was translated from French to English so I don't know if that has anything to do with my questions or not.

What does 2/2 rib, 23/3 rib and 3/3 rib mean?

How much are these measurments in inches?

1.5 cm
10.0 cm
40.0 cm

Thanks,
Marilyn

Answer
10 centimeters is equal to 4 inches.

40 centimeters is equal to 16 inches.

1.5 centimeters is equal to 0.75 inches.

2/2 rib means knit 2, purl 2, repeat across row.

2/3 rib means knit 2, purl 3, repeat across row.

3/3 rib means knit 3, purl 3, repeat across row.
