Hi, right now I am in progress of knitting sweater (my first), I do sleeve now. But it seems I understood something wrong.
The pattern says:
Cast on 40 sts with A using 3 1/2 dpns. Join in a circle and k 4 rnds. CHange to B and k 1 rnd. Work k2, p2 rib for 5 rnds. Change to 4 1/2 mm dpns and work in St st patt from chart 1. Cont with A inc 1 st after first st and 1 st before last st of rnd, then in every 7th rnd up sleeve, total 12 times => 68 sts...
My problem is, that I have 64 sts after this process, which kinda makes sense - total 12 times adding 2 sts = 24. And I start with 40 = 64 in total. So my question is: did I misunderstood something? I need those 68 sts in the end, is it okay to add them in last lines (i.e. 1 rnd + 2 sts, 1 rnd normal, 1 rnd + 2 sts, 1 rnd normal - done)? Any advice?
