Again, this is my first sweater and I’m so close to the end I can taste it! BUT I have come across this last part, which isn’t even a big part, but cannot for the life of me figure out how I come up with 186 sts and it only calls for picking up 138 sts.
How does this happen. I’ve re-read the pattern over and over but I’ve done everything right up until this point. I’m making the collar now for it (tilted duster, IK mag.) And it says to pick up from the right front to the middle back to the left front 138 sts and I picked up 186 sts. If I drop any one of those extra 48 sts, I’ll have quite the gapping for the collar and I don’t want that. And I can’t knit a couple of rows and do decreasing until I get to the 138 sts cause it has me starting the k2 p2 pattern right away.
Anyone had this problem?? Again, I’ve re-read the pattern a million times. Walked away for the night and re-read it again another half million times and I’m still seeing it the same way.
