I was gifted a knitting set over the holidays and am currently working on a shawl. Being a beginning knitter, I’m afraid even with line by line directions, I’m still a bit stuck. That said, boy was I glad to have found this site!
The pattern instructed a garter section that ends with 73 stitches, divided into:
3sts edge, 32sts section, 3sts center, 32sts section, 3sts edge, separated by markers.
The next section is where my woes begin. The pattern reads:
Row 1: sl.1, k2, sm, k1, yo, k7, (yo, k2tog, k6) 3 times, yo, sm, k1, p1, k1, sm, yo, k7, (yo, k2tog, k6) 3 times, yo, k1, sm, k3.
I counted 37 sts needed to complete the section between the edge and center markers, the k1, yo, k7, (yo, k2tog, k6) part, but the garter section as indicated on the pattern up to this step only has 32 sts. What am I missing or am I simply misreading the pattern?
