Here's how I'm doing the maths for the stitch count:

K8(+8), k2tog(+1), yfwd(+1), (k9(+9), k2tog(+1), kfwd(+1) )2 times(x2), k9(+9). (+n)is the number of stiches that instruction places on the right needle

So 8 + 1 + 1 +(9 + 1 + 1) x 2 + 9

8 + 1 + 1 + (11) x 2 + 9

8 + 1 + 1 + (22) + 9

10 + (22) + 9

41

Yes, I see how you're counting it. Because the OP says
Quote:
I'm a United States knitter & having trouble understanding the directions in European pattern
and yfwd is more or less the same as a U.S. yo and I found a video for something similar, I do think there will be increases in the middle. I don't need to be right about this, it's become sort of fun for me as a puzzle to be solved, but I really do want the OP to get it figured out. I know how frustrating these things can be. Either seeing the pattern or a picture of what it's supposed to look like would be nice. Yo or yfwd increases would show up in a photo.

PS: I just woke up and remembered that you are English, (duh! you say so right in your sig) so if anyone will be able to suss it out it should be you. I've become so accustomed to seeing maths used where I use math that I didn't even pause at it. Something should have clicked sooner.

Wow- you ladies are amazing! Thanks for the quick responses! Yes, it was YFWD. I thought that meant I had to yarn over & knit. If I just have to yarn over, my stitch count is good! Yahoo!

You got it? Wonderful!!!! Oh, maybe not, now I have no excuse for not doing housework. Thanks a lot! Seriously, I want to see what it looks like so if you could, would you please post a photo? I'm happy dancing for you.

One more thing: How do you do the KYFWD?

If you have 41 sts after the row then you're good and you're on your way with this sweater. Yes, the yfwd is just a yarn over in US terms. We lump yrn and yfwd together (not so precise but there you are) and just call them yarn overs, no knit sts involved.
Cute wrap!

Don't worry about missing the fact that I'm English and the math/maths thing. Over the past two days I've been hunting down minor details on invoices that the Accounts Department sent over to the office where I'm temping. So my thinking at the moment is "If I can see the little details, everybody else can see them." Also, when I was at school I took, and passed, 'O' Level Mathamatics at 15 instead of the normal age of 16, so numbers and calculations don't scare me. ('O' Levels, or GCSE's as they are now, being the UK national exams for various subjects for 16 year olds.)
