thank you ladies! the actual pattern says:
End Round (K2tog, k1) 6 times - 2 stitches per needle...
that is starting with 6 stitches on each of 3 needles by this point. i am just a math sticklar and it doesn't add up and i couldn't find a pattern correction. it's not a big deal..i ended up with 5 stitches total and cinched them up...
i haven't been on this site for a while...thank you! i will tune in more and hopefully pay this forward!!
have a happy easter and remember:
knit fast, die warm! : )
