Help! Extra Stitches
I'm totally new to knitting, so this is probably a really stupid question. I'm trying to follow a pattern for the first time, and I cast on 45 stitches. Somehow, I end up with extra stitches on my needle. I looked down after a few rows, and there were 48 stitches on my needle! I believe I am adding one new stitch per row, or every other row. Is there any idea how I could be doing this?
I'm sorry, this is probably a really obvious, stupid question, but I'm a brand new beginner!
