I feel like I’m missing something so very obvious as I can’t find anywhere that someone is asking about this.
I’m doing the bevs country cottage version of the sweater (I’d link but since I’m new, it won’t let me yet). Below is the section I’m having trouble with:
[B]Row 32: K21, place on holder, K 23 sleeve st and keep on needle, place rest of stitches on holders – 39 for back, 23 for other sleeve, 21 for other front.
(remove markers as you place sts on holders.)
Sleeve (make sure you get the sleeve and don’t knit the front)
Rows 1-16 : work in stockinette st
Row 17: K2tog *P1, K1, P1, K2tog. Repeat from * (17 sts).
Rows 18-22: Work K1 P1 rib. [/B]
Row 17 of the sleeve is supposed to bring the stitch count from 23 down to 17. However, following the pattern above, I get 18, not 17. Is the pattern wrong or am I screwing something up? Does it even matter???
