PP KKKKK K3Tog YO K YO PP YO K YO SSSK KKKKK PP
The pattern evolves over 14 rows with the K3Tog and YO moving outward.
When I get to the end of the 1st section I am 1 stitch short on the "left" side. But when I count the number of stitches in the panel section I have 1 too many stitches. I'm hopelessly confused!
The pattern looks okay, but you say the k3tog moves? If it moves, then the number of stitches on either side is going to change, right?
