I'm somewhat new to knitting and am trying to knit a little lacey-ish shrug, but the pattern has two places that are a bit confusing, and I thought I'd ask you guys what you think:
The pattern for row 2 says: K2, *yo, k1 and repeat from *.
But for row 3 it says: P3, *drop 1, p1 and repeat.
The problem is that each time I k1 and then yo it creates two actual stitches and 1 yarned over stitch, so that the next row doesn't line up for that dropped stitch since it asks you to only p1 before dropping - (it works great for the first 5 stitches since you start out by P3, then drop)
So, is the pattern wrong? If so, should I change the first row and just *YO, or should I change the second row to *drop 1 stitch, P2
Or am I doing something wrong?
Later on the pattern says to K1 without dropping stitch off needle, yo.
My question is, when I go to yarn over do I put my needle in that same stitch that haven't dropped off, or do I skip it and YO the next one. This might be a dumb question because it seems rather crazy to try that second suggestion but the pattern doesn't seem to be working out right and I'm not sure where I'm messing up.
Anyway, any advice anyone has for me would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
