Re: Help with yarn forward

I start out with 45 stitches in purl...then the next row is the above pattern and when I'm done I am always 3 stitches short. Please help...I really love this project and I'm stumped.
Hmm ... :thinking: My thoughts in red...
p1, p2tog, p5, yf wrap the yarn up & over the needle and back to a purl position. , (k1, yf I think this extraneous since you're about to purl anyway...UNLESS they really mean YO, in which case, you'd do a complete wrap around the needle ending ready for purl , p5, p3tog, p5, yf up&over and back to purl position ) twice, k1, yf up&over and back to purl position. , p5, p2tog, p1

Anyone else care to chime in ??

What pattern are you working? Is it online?
