I know that there are several reports on the internet that no one has ever found an error in Marianne Kinzel's patterns, so I think I'm doing something wrong here. ETA
: I'm making the Square Table Cloth
On rows 31 and 33, I seem to be picking up an extra stitch somewhere:
YO2, k1, yo, (sk2p, yo) twice, k1b, k8, yo, skp, k1, k2tog, yo, k8, k1b, (yo, sk2p) twice, yo, k1, yo2, k1b
By my count this creates 40 stitches.
(yo, k3, yo, k1b) twice, k9, yo, sk2p, yo, k9, k1b, (yo, k3, yo, k1b) twice
This only takes up 39? Am I counting wrong or is there something weird going on?
(Note: sk2p is "slip one, knit two together, psso," k1b is "knit one through the back loop." It says in the instructions that you're supposed to k1p1 into a yo2 on your next plain round, so I know that's meant to create 2 stitches.)
I've been fudging left, right, and center to make up the stitch counts, so I'm sitting down and creating "stitch count per motif" charts for each line of the pattern and this one just seemed off to me. Google tells me nothing of any use about this particular pattern. (If it makes a difference, I have the Dover reprints.)ETA2
to the rescue! It turns out that it's 38 stitches in row 31 (as well counted by tersa
) that are used up by the two bits of instructions I was ignoring on that row. This pattern is otherwise beautifully clear and lovely, if anyone else wants to knit it.
