Hello! So I got a pattern for a baby panda hat on stitchnation.. I'd give a link to the pattern but the website seems to be down.. I tried uploading a photo but it didn't work well. If you really need a photo I'll try again or a different way to show you. But this is what the pattern says:
Cast on 48 sts.
Work 6 rows in Garter st.
Next road (inc): * K3, m1, k3; repeat from * across - 56 sts.
It says I'll have 56 sts? But I kept ending up with 63, I was wondering if I was doing it wrong, but when I wrote it out and added everything together it adds 15.. Which does give me 63.. am I just missing something or being weird? Or did they just write it wrong maybe?
But then it says to work 4 and a half inches in stokinette. After that it says:
Row 1: * K5, k2tog; repeat from * to end - 48 sts.
BUT. Since I have 63 sts, when I decrease on this row. I end up with 54. I have no idea what to do
