I seem to be a magnet for patterns that stump me lately.
I'm working on the Tweety Socks and I can't get the even rounds to work. I'll just write out one here, but they all have the same "problem"
I have 48 sts on my needles, and the repeat should be worked over 24 sts, as you work it twice per round:
Round 2: p2, k6, ssk & pass, yo, k1, yo, p2, yo, k1, yo, sl1-k2tog-passo, k6, p2 (2x)
ssk & pass: slip, slip, knit and return stitch to left needle, pass the next stitch over it and off the needle: then sl the stitch back onto the right hand needle.
No matter how I work at it, I'm missing 2 sts to finish the repeat. I've done it about 4 times, worked out the count in my head and on paper, and I think I would need 26 sts to work the repeat, rather than 24.
What am I doing wrong?
