Please help. I’m going crazy. I’ve unthreaded my knitting like 5 times and had to start over because of a perceived error.
Here is my pattern. With 85 stitches cast on to begin with. The problem that I am having is that when I do this pattern I get to row 4 and I end up with extra stitches left over at the end of the pattern. I’ve not used too many premade patterns before. Typically I have a book that I use and just find the pattern I want and work with that using mulitples of the pattern stitch.
Well I’ve been trying to work in this pattern and I have about 4-5 extra stitches after row 4. I notice that there are parenthesis around the (k2tog tbl, p1, k2tog) but no indication on how many times to do this in the pattern so I’ve been reading it as exact and only doing it once. Am I missing something? Should I be doing this twice?
