I started on my candle flame shawl pattern from the knit picks website
today and I have come across a problem on the very first row of the “pattern” part.
I cast on 97 stitches like the pattern directed and knit in garter for 18 rows. OK no problems there lol.
It states to K8 stitches work row 1 of the pattern and K8 stitches at the end to make the border. (well for all rows, really)
So here we go:
K8, P6 k2, ssk, yo, k1, yo, k2tog, k2, p11 repeat from* P6, K8
( I added in the k8s so you could see what I am talking about.)
K8 + P6 = 14 stitches on both ends X 2 = 28 stitches
That means there are 69 stitches left to do the * part
I counted the * repeats and each * equals to 20 stitches used.
What am I doing wrong ?
Has anyone else run across this problem while they were making their’s?
I checked the corrections page on Knitpicks and nothing has been posted concerning this pattern.
I would be very greatful for any help !! Thanks a bunch !! :??
