Siobhan - left with more stitches than suggested


I am knitting a pom pom yarn teddy cushion & with 36 stitches on the needle I have to do this. K10, sk2po, k2tog, pass previous stitch over. K7, sk2po, k2tog, pass previous stitch over. K9. 28st.
Following this I am left with 32 stitches not 28. Im dropping 4 stitches so not sure why pattern is saying I’ll be left with 28 stitches. Where am I going wrong?
Thanks for any help.

Hi,

You should have a total of 8 sts decreases.
The sk2po has 2 stitches decrease. You skip 1, k2tog, then passover. I think this is where you had it wrong.

Thank you for sharing your question. Best on your project!
