This makes sense. I know that I missed a row in the reptition right before the lifeline. I didn't catch it until it was too late. i didn't think it would matter, but I see now that was foolish. I can't rip back any farther without losing the project (and a few hours of work). It's 178 stitches and I'm simply not talented enough to reinsert a needle through that much without a lifeline. Is there any way to fix this? Should I work the missed row (though out of place) or work two knit rows to get back on track? The pattern is in a book, so no link, but it's a short rep. it is as follows:
Row 1 (RS): K5, [K2 tog] 4x, *[K in front and back of next st] 8x, [K2 tog] 8x, rep from * 5x, [K in f and b of next st] 8x, [K2 tog] 4x, K5
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: K5, P to last 5 sts, K5
Row 4: Knit (this is the one I missed)
(Short Row) K5, turn, K5
Row 5: K5, *yo, K1, rep from * to last 5 sts, K5
(Short Row as before)
Row 6: K5, *P1, drop yo, rep from * to last 5 sts, K5
(This is from a Red Heart "Great Afgans and Throws" pattern pamphlet.)

Any advice?
