This is what I'm facing. This is a Christmas gift for a family member who lives a bagillion miles away. Pattern is
row 1: k5, k5, p1, k9, p1, k5, k5
row 2: k5, p5, k1, p9, k1, p5, k5
row 3: k5, k5, p1, c6f, k3, p1, k5, k5
row 4: repeat row 2
row 5 & 6: repeat row 1 & 2
row 7: k5, k5, p1, k3, c6b, p1, k5, k5
row 8: repeat row 2
this constitutes the whole pattern and it folds at edging between the outermost k5, and the repeating p5, k5 to form the stockinette? What to do? I've used a k5 border before and not had this problem. The yarn is red heart 75% acrylic, 25% rayon.
Someone show me the way to the asylum.
