I’m expanding my knitting skills. I’m working on the lace pattern portion of a project. The instructions read:
Lace Pattern Stitch (worked flat over a multiple of 12 + 3 sts):
*k1, p1, k1, yo, ssk, k5, k2tog, yo; repeat from * to last 3 sts, k1, p1, k1.
I have a total of 99 stitches on a row.
Here’s my dilemma: when I knit the above, I end up with 14 stitches (I’m counting the two yo as two sts each) thus exceeding the 12 sts. Not only that, to knit that portion I go over the 12 sts and “move into” the next 12 sts so I can knit all of the stitches the pattern calls for. And when I look at the knitting pattern picture, it shows that I should end up with and stay within 12 sts.
I don’t know if I’m explaining myself very well but any guidance, help, insight is most appreciated.
