I swear I need to give up knitting. I make mistakes constantly. I’m getting frustrated with myself.
I just started this scarf. I did my garter stitch edging. The pattern specifically states that the number of stitches will change with right side and wrong side rows. I get that. You CO 39 stitches. The first pattern row is “slip 1, k2, SKP, yo, k2, p2, K7, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, p1, yo, k1, yo, SKP, k7, p2, SKP, yo, k4, slip 1 ([I]You will have 41 stitches on your needle at the end of this row, and at the end of all RS rows.[/I])”
I’ve tried it 4 times, but each time I ended up with 40 stitches, not 41. I’m thinking my problem is going from the yo to the p1 because the yarn is already in front. I frogged it, started over, and made sure to wrap my yarn all the way around and back to the front, but I STILL came up with 40 stitches. I wrote down the entire row and crossed off each step as I did, and I still ended up with only 40 stitches. Any other ideas? Has anyone else run into this problem with this pattern?
