I’m not a novice knitter, but I’m self-taught, so I’m really stuck on this - if someone can help me out, I’d really appreciate it. Working on the free pattern referenced above from Crystal Palace Yarns. 78 stitches on the needle calls for the following row:

K2*p2, k2, K2tog, K3, p2* rep to last 2 st and knit those

Knit the row twice and it didn’t turn out, figured it was me, but then I mathematically tried to figure it out, and even though it’s a decrease row, the math just doesn’t add up to me - I’m thinking that the repeat has to use 12 stitches to equal 74 (78 minus the beginning and ending 2 stitches=4) - I only get 11 stitches from the repeat, so it won’t work out.

This is the correction for the pattern - so I am really stymied. If anyone has any experience with this or a suggestion to fix it - I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Diana
