I have not knitted in a while and I can't remember how to figure out how many stitches I need to cast on to do my swatch. Here are the pattern instructions:[COLOR=black][B]Pattern InstructionsMy gauge: two motifs=5.75″ across, unstretched. 10 st per motif plus 1, plus four ribbing stitches each edge of the afghan.Yarn: I used a cashmere/superfine lambswool yarn I’d six-plied from cones to make a yarn on the heavy side of aran weight. Swatch with your own yarn to get the right fit between yarn and needles.[/B][/COLOR]This, I'm sure is an easy one, but I'm drawing a blank. I tried this a few different ways but each time I end up with not enough stitches. Here is a link to the pattern as well.http://spindyeknit.com/patternfiles/embossed-diamonds/Thank you!
It says right here "[COLOR=black]two motifs=5.75″ across, unstretched. 10 st per motif plus 1, plus four ribbing stitches each edge of the afghan" - so I would CO 29 sts, 4 for each edge and 21 for the motifs.[/COLOR]
Okay, Thank you Suzeeq. I should have mentioned that I already tried that, so the problem for me, must be somewhere in understanding the instructions. I think I got it. Thank you so much
