ETA II got a response from lionbrand. I STILL don’t know if I am supposed to ssk on each k row of if I omit that step!!! Here is my email to them:
[b]I have working on the fisherman’s shrug. I am new to knitting but pretty much
know all my stitches. I need a little help understanding the directions for this
shrug…when I get to the part where it says to shape the armholes, I start
running into trouble (understanding the pattern)
It says (in the corrected part)
Row 1 K1, ssk, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1–32 (34) sts.
Row 2 and all even-numbered rows (WS) Purl.
Rep Rows 1 and 2 ONCE MORE–30 (32) sts
Next row and every odd-numbered row (RS) K to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1. Rep this RS
row and purl WS row fourteen times–16 (18) sts. Purl 1 row and place sts on
My question is:
WHen I do row one, EXACTLY like it says, then do ROW TWO…I repeat row one
and row two ONE more time. THEN I JUST knit (no SSK) until I get to the LAST
three stitches, THEN k2tog. purl, then do this again until I have 16 stitches OR
do I just do this 14 times?
[b]Yes, that is correct.

Am I just STUPID??? I feel like an idiot! :pout:
Hi Guys! I’m still working on my shrug http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/50718.html?noImages= and I am shaping the armholes. Well I have TWO rows left, before I reach the 14th time where I am supposed to have 16 stitches on my needles. I have TOO many stitches. I have 32 stitches. What in the WORLD did I do wrong??? DO I jsut keep going UNTIL have 16 on there??? I’ve asked questions before and followed what I was told to do in this thread…
