Hi all...first time posting here and I hope someone can help me
I'm making the pattern found here, size 18mths. I've bolded the number of sts I cast on, etc...
The part I'm having trouble with is at the neck shaping for the front. I've highlighted it. The way I'm doing it, i end up with 15 sts. instead of 11. Either I'm stupid or the pattern is wrong. I bound of the 5 sts at beginning of row, (knit), then bound off 2 sts at end of purl row, and again 2 sts at beg of next row. I'm doing the left front btw. Then I dec 1 st at neck edge like the pattern reads.
Pattern reads as follows:
Front make two, [reversing shaping]
With CC and smaller needles, cast on 28 (30, 33) sts.
Work 8 rows in garter st [1"]. With MC, work as for back, including
all shaping, and, at the same time, when piece meas 8.5 (9.5, 9.75)"
[approx. 6 (64, 66) rows].
Begin Neck Shaping:
At neck edge, bind off 4 (5, 5) sts. Bind off 2 sts at neck edge 2 times. Dec 1 st at neck edge, every other row 3 (3, 4) times. There should be 10 (10, 11) sts rem for shoulder. Cont in st st until piece meas 10 (11, 11.75)" [approx. 68 (76, 82) rows]. Work shoulder as for back.
Any help would greatly be appreciated.
