I am trying to knit a frill for a doll pattern and keep on ending up with far less stitches than the pattern says. I have cast on 52 sts and the 3 rows are:
Row 1: (right side): K1, yf, *K5, pass 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th sts just worked separately over the first st and off the needle, yf; rep from * to last st, k1.
Row 2: P1, [p1, yon KB1] into next st, p1; rep from *to end, (45 sts)
Row 3: K2, KB1, *K3, KB1; rep from * to last 2 sts, K2
I end up with 28 stitches and can’t work out where I’m going wrong. Please can you help?
