I have started to knit a baby blanket that is circular. The instructions go as follows:
CO 6 std. Place 2 sts on each of three dpn
RND 1: knit
RND2: KFB 6 times - 12 sts
RND 3: knit
RND 4: KFB 12 times - 24 sts
RND5: knit. Cut a join b
RND 6: with b purl
Now here is where I am stuck:
RND 7: *K1, YO, K1, YO, K1; repeat from * around - 40 sts.
I continue to get 48 stitches. I start with 8 stitches on each of the three needles. For every stitch I knit, I then yarn over. That DOUBLES the stitch count. So I then tried not adding the YO after the last stitch on each DPN. This results in seven stitches added per needle. This brings the total to 45.
I have tried to chart this out but still the numbers don't work out. The pattern continues for another Color change and two knit rows followed by a purl row and then:
RND 11: K2, YO, K1, YO, PM, K2; repeat from around - 56 STS.
NOW I am thinking I should follow the pattern in round 11 for round 7 but I'm afraid it will throw off the design. Any thoughts or helpful advice? I spent a good deal of money on this project and I would hate to abandon it. Thank you fellow knitters!
