Wow that was a fast reply,
I was just coming to edit as I read on, there was more confusion. Sorry if you are hating this about now.
I've CO 87 st to start project...
adding 4 st with the increase I had mentioned...
totaling 91 stitches.
CO 5 knit to end of row
CO 3 purl to end of row.
Place a marker at beg of row. 101 sts.
Cont even until work from marked row measures 3 ins, ending with a purl row.
Now I am missing 2 sts somewhere, and maybe just maybe you can see where I have missed them.
No matter how many times I count I will not end up with 101.
This is exactly what the pattern says.
