I've been knitting and crocheting for many years. I'm self-taught and really enjoy all the help available from the internet and sites like this one!
I've been searching for a pattern for 6 years that I lost. Well, I just found it last week and ordered the magazine. I made 2 of these blankets years ago and didn't see a problem then. Now that I'm more experienced - Argh! I've frogged it 3 times because the next pattern row (after the first one) doesn't line up! I think I'm losing stitches somewhere but I can't figure it out! It should be simple....
Cast on 153 stitches
Row 1: wrong side: (P1,k1) twice (border), p to within last 4 st, (k1,p1) twice (border)
Row 2: (K1,p1) twice, k to within last 4 st (p1,k1) twice
Row 3: Repeat row 1
Row 4: (K1,p1) twice (k1,yo) 3 times, * (sl,k1,psso) twice, sl2, k1, sl both sl sts over k st (k 2 tog) twice, (yo, k1) 5 times,yo, rep from * , end last rep (yo, k1) 3 times, (p1,k1) twice
From my figuring, it looks like during the repeats I'm removing 6 stitches and adding 5 with the yarn overs. This ruins the next occurrence of the pattern row. :??
Thanks for any insight...
