I am relatively new to knitting, I have only done a few small projects and am teaching myself to knit. I have never done a lace pattern and and completely confused. I read the patterns as needing more stitches than it says to cast on, and I know I am doing something wrong. this is an example…
it says to cast on multiples of 12 plus 1
row 1: (rs) P1, * ssk, k3,yo,k1,yo, k3, k2tog, p1; rep from* to end.
row 2: * k1, p11; rep from * to end
row 2 makes sense to me. row 1 is an example of when I count more than 13 sts. Idk if its the ssk, yo or k2tog that is messing me up.
