Just found this forum after a google search - hope someone can help me as I feel like I have lost the ability to count! :doh:
I have just decided to start knittin again but haven’t done so for years - my knowledge is very very basic!
I’ve just started a pattern and this is what it tells me to do at the start:
Cast on 85 stitches
(k1,p1) 1 time, *cast off 3 sts, p1, k1, p1, rep from * to last 6 stitches, (p1,k1) 1 times.
Left with 49 stitches
I have followed the instructions but I’m left with 43 stitches! Please can someone help me and explain how you go from 85 to 49? I must be doing something very basic wrong!
Thank you so much for any help
