I've been trying to knit the checkerboard lace scarf from the purl bee for a long while now. The pattern calls for 58 stitches to be cast on.
I did row one and everything was fine. After I did row two I counted and I only had 57 stitches. Unwilling to rip out and start over, I added a stitch and did the next row. Now I have 59.
am I supposed to me loosing and gaining a stitch every other row?
Here are the first two lines of the pattern:
Row 1 and every odd numbered row: K2, purl to last 2 stitches, k2.
Row 2: K6, *yo, ssk, k1, (k2tog, yo) 2 times, k3, repeat from * to last 2 stitches, k2.
Thanks, as always
