Hi
I need some help in two different parts of the body.

Head- cast on 32 sts, k 2 rows.
Next row [Kfb, k6, kfb] 4 times. 40 sts.

I knit Kfb, k6, kfb] 4 times, I had 4 stitches remaining. What is that I’m doing wrong?

Second problem
ears- cast on 13 sts. K 4 row
dec 1 st at each end of next row and 3 foll alt rows. 5 sts. K 1 row.

I don’t know what to do here, “3 foll alt rows” means???

Thank you in advance on any help.

You probably used M1 instead of kfb?

Dec [I]every other[/I] row 3 times.

I wondered if you might have been doing a kfb, k6 4 times across your 32sts. This would have left you with 4 stitches. The repeat is to kfb, k6, kfb again. You repeat that whole bit inside the brackets, so you end up with 2 knit front backs next to each other, like this:
Kfb, k6, kfb, kfb, k6, kfb, kfb, k6, kfb, kfb, k6, kfb. That uses up all of the stitches and gives you 8 increases as it calls for.

I can see myself making a misread like this and being stumped because it didn’t work. :lol:

Thank you ladies for ur help.

Sue- thank u for the second point

Mer- I will try writing the pattern out like u did the next time.
