Hello, all! I’ve only been knitting for a few days (other than at attempt when I was about five!), and am finding myself having problems with a pattern. I’m trying to knit a cow and have bought the pattern.
Here’s the part that’s confusing me:
[I]Cast on 31sts and P 1 row
Next row (Right side): K29, turn
Next row: Sl 1P, P26, turn
Next row: Sl 1, K25, turn
Next row: Sl 1P, P24, turn
Cont in this way working 1 st less before turning on every row until the row Sl 1, K7, turn has been worked[/I]
OK. I’ve cast on my 31 stitches and have purled the first row. That was fine.
But now I’m confused. After I knit 29 stitches and turn, I’m left with 2 stitches on the right needle. And when I slip 1, I’m still left with 1. What do I do about that? Do I ignore it and just keep knitting?
It says that I should be working “1 st less” on every row, but this looks like 2 stitches less to me.
I hope someone can help me!
