# Can anyone help with Waverly

Sorry guys but for some reason I am having problems with this pattern.

[FONT=Arial Narrow][B]PATTERN STITCH
Row 1 (WS):[/B] Sl 2 WYIF, * (k1, p1) twice in next st (4 sts made from 1), k4 tog, rep from * to last 3 sts, (k1, p1) twice in next st (4 sts made from 1), p2 – 43 sts.[/FONT]

[FONT=Arial Narrow]I have tried to get guage and I can’t get passed row #1. I end up with 4 stitches left on the needle and not 3[/FONT]

How many did you cast on?

I’m sorry, I was very vague. I am starting with trying to get gauge and the instructions call for me to cast on 21, but at the very end I am supposed to have 3 stitches left on the needle and instead have 4.

You can’t do the pattern on 21 stitches.:shrug:

sl 2 = 2
(4 + 1) = 5 x number of repeats
3 left

To work the pattern, it seems to me that you need a multiple of 5,:??

The info for gauge says 21 st = 4" in Pattern St, that doesn’t mean to just cast on the 21 st. You would need to knit wider than 4" to check your gauge. The pattern is a multiple of 5 + 5 (2 to slip at the beginning of the row and 3 at the end (where you make 4 out of 1 and then P2). If you start with 35 or 40 st you should get a good idea of your true gauge.

Ingrid - For the project, the cast on is 48, but in the row before you start the Pattern St you decrease by 8.

Okay! I couldn’t find the pattern by Googling, so I couldn’t look at the overall picture.

Thanks for all the help. The pattern is actually on Berroco’s website under free patterns and here is the link.

Aaaah! Westerly, not Waverly!:whistle:

I’m starting to think this pattern is to advanced for my skill level. I have cast on for gauge and have been able to get through a few rows, but now I don’t know how to calculate how many stitches there are per inch because the stitches are not clear. For example on stockinette I can clearly see the stitches and therefore calculate. But with this pattern because of the texture I have no idea how I can determine this.
