K1, [K2tog tbl, yo, K1] 5 times, [yo, K2tog] 5 times, K1
gets me from 47 stitches to 67 stitches?

I thought that if I K2tog tbl, yo, K1 then I end up with the same number of stitches. Where am I going wrong please?

(I'd ask my mum but she's moved to Spain on me )

Are you supposed to from 47 to 67 sts?

Moms. What can you do with us?
