I am knitting a poncho. The directions tell you to knit the pattern until you have 88 stitches. Then place markers on either side of the 8 center stitches. (The center is later on split using two balls of yarn to create a slit in the center of the poncho.) On the other side of the markers you are to continue the pattern.
Here is the problem. Throughout the pattern, which is a 4 row repeat you will add two stitches on either side of the markers. This makes the sections on either side of the markers have an uneven number of stitches to knit the pattern. I usually have one or two extra stitches I’m not sure what to do with. If this totally does not make sense I can try and more clearly explain my problem. I have ripped out this part of the pattern about 3-4 times.
