Knitting Pattern, can't see where i have gone wrong!!

Hello fello Knitters.

I wonder if any of you are able to help with a problem I’ve been having.

I’m doing a knitted one piece bolero and following this pattern:
3rd Row: K1, P1, cast off three stiches, P1, * K1, P1, rep from * to end.
4th Row: *K1, P1, rep from * to cast off stiches, turn, cast on three stiches using two-needle method,
turn, P1, * K1, P1, rep from * to end.

The 3rd row is fine, and followed it to a tee. However when I come to the end of row 4, casted on 3 stiches and returned my work, I only have 2 remaining stiches on the left needle. So how can the pattern say ‘turn, P1, * K1, P1, rep from * to end.’ ?!?

The full pattern is here (although you may have to sign up {for free} to view it).

I’ve gone wrong somewhere, but no idea where it is. I would be very grateful in hearing from you.

Happy Knitting :smile:

Welcome to the forum!
I’m having trouble accessing the website right now. Are the cast off sts for a buttonhole?
I agree with you, there are only 2sts left after the cast on for row 4.

Hi, thank you.
I hadn’t thought that! Make sense now! Its a pattern that is knitted top to bottom, and I’m starting with the neck.
I recon I should finish by knitting the last 2 stiches, then continue with the pattern.
I’ll post an update when its finished :slight_smile:
Thank you :slight_smile:
