lace knitting
I am working off a lace knitting pattern (chart 2) and am ending up with a different number of stitches after I finish the odd rows.

Am I doing something wrong?

Please help!

Hi and welcome!
Check that you're doing the yo correctly. You just want a loop over the needle. You don't work the next stitch as part of the yo. Alternatively are you forgetting a yo in the pattern? How many sts do you end with, more or fewer than you should? Maybe stitch markers for each repeat would help too.
Gorgeous sweater, btw. Love it.

im just practicing by doing the gauge. it increases on me. so I start with 27 and I get 28 stitches.

I was doing the yo incorrectly, thank you for the tip, but when I tried it I had two more stitches after completing row 1.

It is a straight up and down pattern right?

guess I will keep trying

Yes, straight pattern. The double decreases account for the yarn overs across the row and in the repeats. I don't know how many times you need to do the decreases but maybe the stitch markers will help you figure out where the stitch count is going wrong. Both the k3tog and the sssk will decrease 2 sts each.
