I think it is caused by the Purl into the Long Tail CO
. Remember you are joining on the RS. My new understanding of Amy's video and personal experience tell me one should only Purl into a LTCO from the WS. Amy has another video for an alternate cable CO
for 1,1 or 2,2 rib. You reverse the LT CO for the P's by first drawing from the finger then crossing to the thumb. (off to get links to insert.)
I say this because I had a mess when I tried knitting into the WS of a LTCO. A k on the WS is the same as a P from the RS.
Having said that I would ask, is your pattern written for use with circular needles and the LT CO?
Somehow, I discovered that k in the WS of a LT CO causes it to come undone. I am sure doing a P into the RS of the LT CO would cause the same problem.
