Cute pattern. Is this where you are?

CO 52 st and join in the round. place marker. Knit in stockinette st for about 15 cm/6"

Decrease 2 st. evenly on the next row


Knit 5 rounds of the garter stitch pattern

Are you doing magic loop? I have a tendency to get a yo at the point where I pull the needles to start knitting on the other one. If I were going to just continue and do an extra dec I'd do 3 - k2tog or p2tog whichever it would be.

I would just k2tog. Since you have to decrease 2 evenly anyway I'd just do three k2tog separately. A k3tog would likely stand out whereas the others are almost invisible.

That is the best news ever! And a real lesson in persistence besides. I am so glad you found a pair of circs that work for you.

Decreasing evenly means to space out the decreases so to decrease 3 sts (starting with 53sts) you could k16, k2tog, k15, k2tog, k16, k2tog. That way the decreases won't be bunched in one place and each time you k2tog you'll decrease one stitch, ending with 50sts. That'll take care of your extra stitch.
See if you can figure out what's giving you the extra stitch though because later in the pattern, on the k2p2 rib, an extra stitch will throw off the ribbing.

Seriously I dont know how Ive got that extra stitch. i cant even spot how I did that, wouldnt have a clue how to figure that out.

Im half tempted to frog and start over but then I think ive knitted lots of this it seems as though Im ruining my hard work.

Oh, don't undo you're work for one extra stitch here! It's never going to show and as you noted, there's a decrease row (or two) coming up in the pattern anyway. Decrease back to the given number and then maybe put in some stitch markers, maybe every 10sts or so. That way if you should gain another stitch it'll be easier to see where it is and maybe figure out how it's happening. Little loops of contrasting color yarn work well and are easy to make.

Be sure to count every row too. Stitch markers for finding an extra stitch are great but I've learned from experience you have to count often for it to work.
