Hello everyone!

I saw this come across the blogs, and I left Evelyn a message saying I reposted her question in this group, thought there might be more of a chance someone else catching her question in this wonderful group :)


i got my pattern from the bad around the yarn. the yarn soft creations by TMA.
cast on 123st.
k 12 rows in garter
row 1 k 10, put marker on kneedle,*p 2,(k1,yo,k1,p2) 5times,put marker
k5, put marker, repeat from* 3times more,
ending last repete k10 insead of k5.

i always have 2 or 3 stitches left.
what am i doing wrong? how do i count this to come out right?

Are you sure there are no "p2 tog" or "k2 tog" in the pattern?  Without doping this out further the pattern is increasing every row with the yo's without a decrease in the repeat sho it should be getting wider and wider . . . ?

That's just that row. I'm sure a later row will take care of it.

I have looked the pattern over again and do not find any thing about P2tog. I do thank all of you ladies in trying to help me. I will try the second row like Peggy said and see what happens.

Let us know if you still need help. I think it will work out, though.

P2 (K1, yo, k1,p2) 5 times uses 22 sts (Ignore the YOs for now. They will add sts but not use them). You should be using the following numbers of sts:
10 - 22 - 5 - 22 - 5 - 22 - 5 - 22 - 10
This adds up to 123. You should have 27 sts between the markers, counting the YOs. I would count all the sts between each set of markers. I think you'll find you have fewer somewhere.
Ball band patterns can be iffy, but this sounds right to me. Hope this helps.
