I just finished knitting a sleeve for the sweater I’m working on, and there seems to be a problem even though I followed the pattern step by step… In the beginning of it I kept checking I have as many stiches as the pattern says I should, and then when it said to do the same until there are x stitches, I just calculated how many rows I need to do, marked it on paper, and stopped counting… Now after I’ve reached the raglan shaping and started decreasing, I checked to see if I have the right amount of stitches, and somehow I’m 10 stitches short! This happened to me a few times when knitting the back of the sweater, and when I didn’t understand why I just redid the last third of it a few times, and figured I just had a mistake because I watched movies while knitting… Now I wasn’t distracted by anything and it keeps happening I want to understand what I’m getting wrong about the pattern so I won’t have to keep knitting this sweater over and over…
Here is the sleeve part of the patt:
This is how I marked it on paper (it’s just the cable pattern, and the little circles in the side are how many rounds to do/how many times to knit each secrion. The squares are increases, and the ones with dots in them are the raglan shaping rounds, although I did them after I finished the first part and undid some of it)
And this is the sleeve so far
I’m supposed to be left with 58 stitches at this point, but for some reason I only have 48… Imo it does look a little narrow for the size I chose.
Any help will be appreciated,
Thanks in advance <3
