Good afternoon all.
Have recently started knitting. Bad choice of pattern, extra fine merino so taking forever for newbie like me. It's a tunic. Have reached the wide straps at the back.
70 stitches, have been working in stocking stitch but with first and last 16 stitches in k2,p2 rib for last 9 inches. Looking good.
Now pattern states (RS) change to k2, p 2 rib, work 4 rows. Have done so but had I stopped and thought, 70 stitches not a multiple of 4 so now my lovely ribbing has disappeared.
What should I knit to follow the same ribbing all the way across?
I can't see a way round it.
Would really appreciate any and all advice. Don't want to give up. Many thanks
