Hi all, I’m new here, i just hope someone can help me with this pattern. I’ve looked for pattern correction at the source and found nothing.
It was published in a UK publication, ‘how to knit and crochet’ and the pattern is called ‘Cali’. It’s a lace scarf and appears relatively simple but one row into the lace portion of the pattern I lose 2 stitches! Here is how the pattern reads:
Cast on 24 sts
Knit 8 rows
Start lace pattern:
Row 1: k6, yfwd, k3tog, yfwd, k3, yfwd, sk2po, yfwd, k9. (It’s at this point that I have only 22 stitches on the needle so I’ll only list the next row not the whole rest of the pattern)
Row 2: k4, p16, k4
Two things I should mention, my research shows that the UK yfwd abbreviation is the same as the US yo abbreviation… And the pattern notes a special abbreviation of sk2po means slip one, k2tog, pass slipped stitch over.
I’ve even charted it out on graph paper and still come up with the same problem.
Can a more seasoned knitter please oh please tell me what I’m doing wrong, I really love this pattern.
