Using dpn and following my pattern... Is this right?

I moved my stitches to dpn’s per my pattern’s instructions. There are 32 sts on each needle (3 needles).

The first instruction after moving to dpn is:

Dec rnd 1: *K2, p2, k1, k2tog, k2tog, k1, p2; rep from * to end of rnd - 80 sts.

I’m working the stitches on the first needle and as I come to the last stitch I’m at the part where I need to k2tog. So that means I need to take the last stitch off one needle and the first stitch off the next needle and knit them together.

I’m wondering if that’s possible or if I did something wrong.

Unless I can’t count today, you’re right - the second k2tog happens over two needles. I would be inclined to slip the last st on your needle over to the next needle and continue from there. That’s just my make-it-up-as-you-go-along approach, though. You might want to ask someone who knows what they’re doing. :wink:

I would divide the stitches onto the three needles so that it works out evenly with your pattern repeat. The repeat you showed contains 12 stitches so I would do two of the needles with 36 stitches each and the last needle with 24 stitches. Then you don’t have to worry about the K2tog going over two needles. It doesn’t matter how you distribute the stitches, just as long as you know where your beginning of round is.

Thanks! :slight_smile:
