This particular stitch pattern I'm attempting is confusing. If it says "Multiple of 8 sts plus 1" doesn't that mean that you need nine stitches for each occurence of the pattern sequence? You cast on in 9 stitch multiples? Help, please...?
That will probably fix this problem, but... I cast on 27 stitches (see above) and it says:
"1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th rows (RS): *k2, p1, k3, p1, k1; repeat from * to last st, k1."
Okay... so i did the sequence, and then i did it a second time. The third time i finished the row on a purl stitch. What's wrong with this picture? Did I not translate the instructions properly?
Thanks a ton!
