Feather Border:(multiple of 12 sts)
Rnd 1: *Yo, ssk (see page 2), k7, k2tog, yo, k1; rep from * to end
Is that the round you're having problems with? If you're coming up a stitch short, maybe you miscounted for the cast on? Did you count the stitches in the knit round? If you have markers every 12 sts then you should be able to determine if your count is off in any one repeat.
