Is there any way for me to salvage this wrap?

I am trying to knit the Granny Smith wrap. I cast on 106 stitches and went from there per pattern instructions but along the way I’ve had a few hiccups:teehee: and now I’m down to 44 stitches. I don’t know if there is an easy way to increase so that I’m back up to 106 stitches while staying in the pattern design or not. I’m thinking of chucking it up to a learning experience and moving on.

Here is a pic of how it looks now:

This may be the pattern:
Since there’s such a long way still to knit on the pattern and because you’re off by so many sts, the best thing may be to start again. If you add sts you’ll always have this partial wedge at the beginning and want to balance it with a similar shape at the end. That could be more trouble for you.
Do you know why you were losing sts? Too many k2tog? Not enough yo?
It looks like beautiful yarn and a lovely wrap.

I also recommend starting over. Those holes are supposed to be in straight lines, not slanting like in your picture. Also, make sure you count your sts at the end of EVERY row, to make SURE you’ve got the same # every row. It will seem like a pain, but you’ll know right away if you’re off.


I think starting over is the best thing to do. It would be pretty wonky if you continued as is. It is a learning experience, but you do want to be able to wear it right? :hug:

K10, K2tog, yo, K10, K2tog, yo*. Repeat * - **. Knit last 10 sts

It looks like a 12 stitch repeat, if I’m wrong someone please give the correct number. On the last garter stitch row of the border place a marker after the first 12 stitches, then after each set of 12 stitches until you only have 10 left. Work each repeat so that it comes out right between the markers and using all 12 stitches and having no leftovers.

It’s a beautiful pattern and deserves a fresh start. You’ll be glad you frogged and did it over.

it’s so evenly reduced… i’m wondering if the only issue is that you’re forgetting the yarn overs after every pattern repeat? if so, that’s an easy remedy, especially if you follow GG’s advice of stitch markers and cindy’s advice of double checking stitch count after every row. but yes, frogging is the only way to salvage it. be strong, be brave, you’ll be so much happier with the end product.

Oh forgot to update this: Yes, I frogged it. It was painful but necessary. I do want to wear it, lol. I’ll try again later. Yep, now I know that I have to count after every row and use stitch markers. I bought some at Joann’s and am using them on the dress I’m making now.
