Hello, all! I've only been knitting for a few days (other than at attempt when I was about five!), and am finding myself having problems with a pattern. I'm trying to knit a cow and have bought the pattern.
Here's the part that's confusing me:
Cast on 31sts and P 1 row
Next row (Right side): K29, turn
Next row: Sl 1P, P26, turn
Next row: Sl 1, K25, turn
Next row: Sl 1P, P24, turn
Cont in this way working 1 st less before turning on every row until the row Sl 1, K7, turn has been worked
OK. I've cast on my 31 stitches and have purled the first row. That was fine.
But now I'm confused. After I knit 29 stitches and turn, I'm left with 2 stitches on the right needle. And when I slip 1, I'm still left with 1. What do I do about that? Do I ignore it and just keep knitting?
It says that I should be working "1 st less" on every row, but this looks like 2 stitches less to me.
I hope someone can help me!
