Need help with strip a
Says to repeat rows 6-7
But when I do it there’s no way I can get it that long. I lose so many stitches.
Im new to this and don’t fully understand

Welcome to KnittingHelp!
You shouldn’t be decreasing any sts with these rows. Your stitch count should remain at 23 throughout.
There’s an increase at the beginning of the even number rows and a decrease at the end of the row. What kind of increase are you making?

I am gree to this too so it’s a black magic for me ;d
