Okay, I'm trying a grand experiment -- I have a pattern calling for a CO of 61 sts for k1 p1 ribbing with the first stitch of each row slipped. I want to double the ribbing, as my yarn and needles are exactly half the gauge called for.
Double check me, please: I figure this means I'll need 121 sts, not 122, because the rib needs to be an odd number...right? or would it be better to do 123? (I'll be decreasing the number of stitches by half after the ribbing and some stockinette stitch rows and doubling the yarn to reach gauge in the pattern. )
