I am knitting the bubble curtain from Mason Dixon knitting. I've never used a chart to knit before, and I'm a little confused.
The pattern says the chart shows an 18 stitch repeat, but I only count 17 stitches. It looks like you could (or should?) add a regular knit st after the 17th st, but I wasn't sure if that would throw the pattern off.
The chart shows stitches as follows (I'm listing the stitches in a long list, but they appear horizontally in the chart)
Notice that the last repeat (K2tog, YO) is NOT followed by a plain k st, as the other repeats show.
Am I missing something with following the chart? Should it have 18 columns or blocks corresponding to 18 st? It only has 17 columns/blocks, so does that mean the pattern is wrong or does it mean that there's something I'm missing about following charts?
Thanks for your help!
