I am missing 6 stitches

by Mary Jane

I am knitting a sweater and now have stitches from sides, back and sleeves on one needle ready to decrease. I am 6 stitches short and pattern calls for putting markers for the decrease. Not sure what to do. I don’t want to start over!,

thank you.

missing 6 sts
by: Ratchadawan

Hi Mary,

I'm sorry to hear.

I think the best thing to do is to continue with your decrease but leave 6 sts out of the decrease part so that you come out with the same number on the pattern.

Hope you can fix this.
