Why am I missing a stitch count

by Frances
(Delta, BC, Canada)

Hello. I am attempting to knit the Drooping Elm Leaf pattern.
The pattern calls for 15 + 1 stitches
Row 3 of the pattern reads: *K1, yo, k1, ssk, p1, k2tog, k1, p1, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yo, k3, yo.

I have 16 stitches on my swatch however when I knit the above I end up with 2 stitches instead of 1 stitch. The pattern says to knit the last stitch. What am I doing wrong… Do I drop the psso off my needle? I hope you can help me…..Thank you kindly

Hi Frances,

Yes, you should drop the passover st of the needle. I think that was the problem.

You can watch a video below for the drooping elm leaf pattern.

Thanks for the question and the visit. Have fun!
