need help with double knit hearts hotpad
I copied the free pattern for the double knit hearts hotpad (It looks so great I just have to make one!)

Here's my trouble: the pattern shows only 29 sts across, but the directions call for casting on 30 double longtail! (I understand that each st in pattern represents two sts knitted..) I'm not having problems DOing the double knit part, but getting my knitting to match up to the pattern.

Also, pattern says to purl last st of each row, and then slip beginning of next row, but that also messes up the pattern, so I was thinking of adding an extra two sts for the beginning and end of each row. What do you think?

I just bought the instructional CD, Will this have answers to my problems? Anyone else have this problem?

Thanks! Sarah
