Problem with pattern
cardigan top down
Hi. I am VERY MUCH a beginning. I looked on YouTube to knit a simple baby cardigan. I was doing OK. Said to cast on 40 and then garter knit four rows which I did.
Set up row went: k3, p1, p6, p1, p18,, p1, p6, p1, k3
Row 1: k2, kfb, yo, k1, yo k6, yo k1, yo, k18, yo, k1, yo, k6, yo, k1, yo, kfb, k2
Row 2: k3, purl to the last 3 stitches and k3
So far so good.
However, it then says to repeat these rows 10 times each. But in Row 1 I am making two extra stitches with the two kfbs. So when I get to the end of the row I am left with extra stitches which of course increases each time I do row 1. I have started three times now. What am I doing wrong please?
