Question

Hello!
This is one instructions thats driving me crazy! No matter how many times I tried to follow the instructions, i always ended up with 23 stitches but still have 4 more loops to go.

Here's the row with 23 stitches:
P1, k2tog, k3, YO, k1, YO, k3, slip 1, k2tog, psso, k3, YO, k1, YO, k3, slip 1, k1, psso, p1

So far I understand p1, Knit 2 together, knit 3, YO to move the yarn in front, knit 1, YO, knit 3, slip yarn from left needle to the right needle, k2tog,.......then I slip 1 stitch from the left needle to right needle and then I knit 1, then I pass over the second yarn from the right needle which ends up with 2 stitches added on the right needle...is that right? And so on....k3, YO, K1, YO, K3, slip 1, k1, psso (same method i stitched the first psso), p1. If you count total stitches it is 29 stitches!! Help! Smiles

Thanks so much!

Jan, on the first passover which is "sl1,k2tog,psso" you slip a stitch from left needle to right needle and then knit 2 together, then pass the slip st over the k2tog. This make 2 sts decrease. You should end up with just 1 st when complete sl1,k2tog,psso. I think you k1 intead of k2tog.

For the second psso which is "sl1,k1,psso", you slip a st to right needle and knit a st on left needle, then you pass the slipped st over the k1 st. This is a one st decrease.

I hope you find this helpful and if you need more help I will be happy to help out.

Happy Knitting,

Ratcha
