I am knitting mittens and I have come to the part where I need to shape the top of my mitten, but I am struggling with the numbers shown in the pattern, and I’m afraid that I’ve made a mistake!
The pattern of the body is this repeated pattern several times (with every 3rd row being a cable knit pattern):
K3, P2, K2, P2, K6, P2, K2, P2, K19 (40 stitches)
The first round of the shaping of the top is:
Round 1: K1, Sl1, K1, PSSO, K14, K2tog, K2, Sl1, K1, PSSO, K14, K2tog, K1 (end up with 36 stitches).
I got to the bolded part (K14) and I was only able to K13 because I ran out of stitches. In order to complete the round as instructed, I’ll have to knit the stitches in the beginning of the round again.
Did I do something wrong? Or do I need to work the stitches in the beginning of the round again?****
