I’m an extremely frustrated knitter here! I am working on this pattern but the stitch count never comes out right:
Bernstein baby yarn (super fine 1)
252 stitches total
2nd row: k6 *(k1 p1 k1) in next st. sl1 k2 tog paso.Rep from * to last 6 stitches. K6
4th row:k6 *sl1 k2 tog psso (k1 p1 k1) in next st. Rep from * to last 6 stitches.k6
So here’s my problem: I know for a fact that I start out with 252 stitches on my knit rows(I count very carefully and then go over even a 2nd time just to make sure) but the stitch count never stays at 252! On the 2nd row at the end I come up 1stitch short, and on the 4th row I come up 2 stitches short! I pay attention to these two rows/not watching TV or anything so I’m not missing anything. I don’t know if there is a mistake in the pattern or I’m doing something wrong!
