I’ve been knitting for a while, but am just venturing into more complicated patterns and have been having fun with Hansi Singh’s Amigurumi Knits. I’m working on the Starfish pattern and have run into a snag I can’t figure out, please help!! The tops of the starfish arms are knit in the main color and then the pattern instructs 12 stitches to be picked up from the two sides of an arm (two long sides of a triangle) for a total of 24 stitches. The pattern reads: continue working back and forth in rows
Row 1 (wrong side): Sl1, K7, w&t
Row 2: P8
Row 3:Sl 1, K3, w&t
Row 4: Sl1, K10, P2tog-tbls, P2tog, K10, P1 -22 sts.
Row 4 seems to have 26 stitches in it, but I only start with 24! Where do these other two stitches come from? Are they created somehow with the short rows? Or is it a typo and I should start with 26 sts?
