I'm just NOT getting this pattern. So I sent a copy to my cousin in California (2000 miles away). She lives with her Mom and they both knit, so they tried it. They think there is a mistake in the pattern. This was her latest comment:

Quote:
We are totally stuck on row 21. In the comments at the bottom of the pattern the knitter says that ssk is slip slip knit. If you do that you use up 3 stitches. When I look up ssk it says to slip two stitches and knit them together, which would be only using 2 sts. Meanwhile having tried both ways I still run out of sts before I get to end of row 21.

We noticed that every other row has increased by 8 sts. EXCEPT Row 21. We think there is a mistake in the pattern.

Many of the RS rows increase by 8sts but not all of them. Row 21 requires 86sts and with 5 increases, finishes up with 91sts. The ssk is indeed a decrease that uses 2sts and leaves you with one stitch. The problem may be in how the M1 is done. For this pattern you need to increase between sts like this (or see other similar increases on the Free Videos tab). If you use a stitch for the M1, you'll run out of sts before the end of the row.

Thanks salmonmac. I passed on your comment to them. I cannot seem to get past row 5 myself. Guess I don't really understand how to do some of the stitches. May need to find a knitter in person! How far are you from me? I'm in Perth, Ontario, Canada. (just kidding, really.....too far).

No, no plans to travel west, salmonmac. My DH would love a trip to New Zealand, but trying to wrap my head around that....I'm not much for flying.

I just got an answer from my cousin and her Mom about the row you advised on:
Quote:
We just tried row 21 AGAIN and doing the M1 in the loop between the sts is what made the difference (I think) cause it worked out this time.

I did the knitting while Mom read the sts to me. It's not a difficult row we were just not doing it correctly. I was doing the M1 as a regular increase.


Row 5 - K1, P1, then you do K1, yo twice, then K1, inc 1 in next st and then you do the underlined portion 3 times, then k1, yo twice, then k1, P1, K1.
