It’s probably me, I’m sure it is, but I really cannot work out why it doesn’t work. I’d be so grateful if anyone could explain where I’m going wrong.
Here is the first part of the pattern - its for a lovely little stuffed cat.
The head and body are knit in one piece.
Rd 1: Cast on 6 st (Emily Ocker’s cast on), dividing them on 3 dpns and knit one round placing a marker at the beginning of the round.
Rd 2: k1, inc, k1 (repeat on each needle) 9 st total
Rd 3: k
Rd 4: k1, inc, k1, inc, k1 (repeat on each needle) 15 st total
Rd 5: k
Rd 6: k
Rd 7: k1, inc, k1, inc, k1, inc, k1, inc, k1 (repeat on each needle) 27 st.
It works until Rd 4 - but when I k1 inc (in the round using magic loop) then I get 13 stitches not 15. And then even if I had 15 stitches it would go to 23 not 27. The only bit of the pattern I don’t understand is that it says ‘repeat on each needle’. Is this where I’m going wrong? What does it mean? Or is it because i’m using magic loop rather than double pointed?
Sorry for long post, but if you knew how angry i was!..
