I don't have enough stitches! Pattern for baby blanket is this: Row1 (RS):K3 LIL, k10,ssk,k2tog, k10, LIR, k2 6 times, k1 Row 2: Purl
There are 160 stitches on the needle. If I didn't do the k2 with each increase and decrease, I'd be OK! But that's not the pattern. What am I doing wrong?
I am counting all those stitches together and I've got 160 sts. I think you might have miscounted stitches during LIL and LIR. The LIL and LIR sts are worked from sts of previous row, so basically you gain extra 2 sts without having to work with any sts on your present row.
I make a video here showing the first row (total of 30 sts) mentioned above. I didn't repeat the 26 sts pattern in the bracket.
Here is the video to show you how I did that;
The video is still new and it might not finish processing. If you don't see a video box above, you can use the link below to go to youtube.
