Beginner. What am i missing here?CO 11 sts.Row 1: K3, K2tog, YO, K1, YO, SSK, K3Row 2 and 4: K2,P7,K2Row 3: K2, K2tog,YO,K3, YO,SSK,K2
Starting in Row 1 I end up with not enough stitches. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong?
Hi. Welcome to KH. How many stitches do you end up with?
K3 - 3 stsK2tog - decrease 2 sts to 1 for 4 stsyo - will count as a st on next row, 5 stsK1 - this k1 brings you to 6yo - yo will make 7ssk - decrease, 8 stsk3 - then knit the last 3 for 11 sts.
You should have the same 11 stitches. The YO's are increases and the k2tog and ssk are decreases and there are two increases and two decreases. Are you doing the stitches correctly? Go to the videos on increases and decreases to check if you are before anything else gets confusing.
Remember that a yarn over doesn't use a stitch. It makes a loop over the needle between two stitches.http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/play/yarn-over-english
