I have a pattern for a herringbone lace scarf, which goes something like this:
Herringbone Lace Rib: worked on a multiple of 7 plus 1 stitches
Row 1: sl 1 knitwise, *p1, k1, yo, p2tog, k1, p1, k1, repeat from * to end
Row 2: sl 1 purlwise, *k2, yo, p2tog, k2, p1, repeat from * to end
- Cast on 36 stitches.
- Work in Herringbone Lace Rib until scarf is desired length.
- Bind off loosely.
- Sew / Weave / Darn all loose ends.
What keeps happening is that by the time I get to the end of Row 1, I have 3 extra stitches. So, instead of ending the row with the sequence “k1, p1, k1,” I end up having to “p1, k1, yo” before starting the 2nd row. What do you think I could be doing wrong? I’ve started this over 5 times and I’ve experienced the same problem each time.
Thanks in advance for the help!
