Multiples in my pattern
by Barbara Anschutz
Hi - very frustrated - I am doing a pattern I did before but I don't want to cast on 96 stitches.
This is the formula
3+2x45+3= 96 stitches
I want to not CO 96 stitches - too wide - I would like it maybe in the low 80s or 70s but I have to come out with 3 purls on each end - so end needs P3 on other end to come out
Here is the pattern
Some rows are all purl
These are the two multiple rows
P3, *K2 tog, YO repeat from *across to last 3 stitches, P3
other row is
P3, *YO, K2 tog repeat from *across to last 3 stitches, P3
I just want to cast on in the 70s or 80s - 96 is too wide
But don't know how to change the formula where I would come out with 3 left to purl.
Can you help me please with a new formula to come out right.
Thank you kindly again.
