sirdar 8886
I am knitting SIrdar 8886, and am about to pull my hair out!
here is the problematical lacy trim:
91 sts
1st row: Purl
2nd row: k3 (m1 k5) 17 times, m1 k3. 109 sts
3rd row: p
change to 4 mm needles
1st row: k3 *k1, k2tog, yfwd, k1, yfwd, s1, k1, psso, k6, rep from * to last 10 sts, k1, k2tog, yfwd, k1, yfwd, s1, k1. psso, k4
2nd row: p
3rd row: k3, *(k2tog, yfwd) twice, k1, yfwd, s1, k1, psso, k2, inc in next st, k2, rep from * to last 10 sts, (k2tog, yfwd) twice, k1, yfwd, s1, k1, psso, k3. 117 sts.
this is the row that I can't get, 109 sts - the first k3=106 sts, - the last 10 sts= 96. my count has the rep = 11 sts which does not rep to 96! AARGH
4th row: p
5th row: k3, *k1, k2tog, yfwd, s1, k1, psso, k7, rep from * to last 10 sts, k1, k2tog, yfwd, s1, k1, psso, k4
when I do the math for the 5th row, the same problem occurs. 117-3-10= 104, the rep is 9 which does not rep to 104! AAARGH
