I am a newbie here & have just started to teach myself to knit. Thanks to this site I am progressing quite well!!
I have decided to try knitting some squares of different stitches to practice before I start a project. They will be knitted together to make a blanket if they turn out well, or dishcloths if they're a bit wonky!!
Anyway I am having problems with the folllowing pattern for lace rib stitch. I have tried to "trust the pattern" but I am going wrong somewhere. This is exactly what the pattern says -
cast on 41 stitches
row 1: k1 yrn k3 sl1 k2tog psso k2 yrn k1 repeat to end
row 2: p
I think I understand the pattern abbreviations & how to work the stitches (again thanks to the wonderful glossary & videos here!!)
Row one the first stitch is knit 1, then I knit the following stitches and repeat whats inbetween the ** (ie not including the first k1)
My problem is that I only seem to be working 9 stitches within each ** repeat, so I have 4 stitches left at the end of the row.
What am I missing? Any advice would be appreciated!
