So, uh. I’m doing a pair of socks (which really is somewhat above my knitting ability level, but I never said I was sane snicker), and I’m doing the heel increase. I’ve been doing it on three DPNs (well, four, I suppose); the top of the foot is all on one needle, and has a pattern thingie that repeats every ten rows, and the bottom of the foot is split over two needles, and it’s been more or less okay … until now.
The instructions call for increasing, at the beginning of needle 2 and end of needle 3 (well, one stitch in from beginning/end, but never mind that), every other row. I’ve got it so that the increase rows for needles 2 and 3 match up with the even-numbered rows of the 10-row pattern on needle 1.
…and I’ve done 11 rows, but needles 2/3 each have six more stitches than they started with, rather than five.
I’m guessing that somewhere I did an increase on an odd row as well as the surrounding even rows. I have no idea /where/. And now I have two problems: one, I’m going to end up two rows short; and two, I have NFI what to do for the other sock of the pair. If I do the second sock according to pattern, it’ll be two rows longer. If I deliberately try to duplicate the error, it won’t look the same since I don’t know exactly where the error happened. If I add two non-increase rows to the end of the increase section of the first sock, and do the second sock in pattern, they’ll be the same length, but they won’t look the same. If I add two non-increase rows to the end of the increase section of the first sock, and try to duplicate the error (including additional rows) on the second sock, it’ll probably look funny, and I’m likely to mess it up further.
