I'm having a hard time with the double eyelet rib pattern. I'm on Row 4 of the pattern and I keep coming up with one stitch extra. I've counted them and I have 2 purl, 5 knit all the way around until I come to the end with one extra. I've counted 91 sts and can't seem to find what I'm doing wrong?
Would love to make this skirt for my granddaughter but am running out of patience, please help!
Thank you so much,
I am trying to figure out how you can ended up with one extra stitch if you had 91 sts to begin with. Did you skip a passover stitch on the third row? How do each column of the the pattern look after row 3? Are they all align in the right place?
If you couldn't find any mistake on row 1-3, then I would suggest making a p2tog at the end of row 4 to get rid of that annoying stitch. Then start from row one again and see what will happen.
I wish I were there with you, so we could look at your work together. Please keep trying.
Still trying to start the Baby Mia skirt and every double eyelet rib
pattern I find it says multiples of 7 plus 2, could that be the
problem? Should I be casting on 93 sts?
I went back to the site and noticed you mentioned changes to the
pattern since you were using circular needles, but don't think that
has to do with the amount of sts in the pattern.
Would really like to start this but can't rip it out again and again
since the Caron yarn is becoming frayed.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Hi again Ratchadawan,
I just finished again going from row 1 to row 4 and still ended up the
same with one stitch over. This is what I wrote down.
From Row 1 you have a 7 stitch pattern with 91 stitches which divided
comes out fine.
Row 3 is a 6 stitch pattern (at least that's what I got) and after it
you have 78 stitches left.
Working Row 4 which is another 7 stitch pattern (since the same as Row
1) does not go in evenly to the 78 stitches that you have left from
I think that is why I'm coming out with 1 extra stitch, if Row 4 had
77 stitches it would work.
So my question is, how many stitches do you have after Row 3? I've
done it now many times and keep coming out with the
