I can’t seem to get the stitch counts on the first few rows of this vest to match up, no matter what I do. I’ve been knitting for 5 years and this is the first time a pattern has given me so much grief.
The pattern begins with a CO of 85 stitches. What’s throwing me is the 'stitch repeat of 14 plus 1’on Row 1. I thought it meant that before the p2, k1 at the end of Row 1 I was supposed to add an extra stitch. But when I do that I am two stitches short on Row 2. I’ve also tried adding 1 stitch every time I do the repeat, but that doesn’t work either! Please advise!
