I have started working on “Little Girl Pink Blanket” from caron.com. I’m having some trouble starting the body pattern. I knit the first 5 rows, and then on row 6 kfb in pattern as stated, and i end up with said 152 stitches. no problem with any of that. the problem starts with row 7 - after following the pattern for that row i NEVER EVER end up with the 8 stitches to knit at the end like i should…i have no clue what i’m doing wrong…i have attempted twice and once i ended up wiht 6 and once with 7…please help!
I have posted part of the pattern below.
CO 145 sts loosely. Work back and forth in rows using circular needle.
Rows 1–5: Knit.

Row 7 (RS): K4, *k5, yo, ssk, k4, p2, k4, p2; rep from * to last 15 sts, k5, yo, ssk, k8.
