I'm currently working on a pattern for a baby's cabled sweater, but am now stuck on something which seems quite simple. Really hoping someone can help. I'm now on the sleeves, it asks me to cast on 48. Then row 1 is k2, yfwd, k2tog, *k 1, sl1, k1, psso, yfwd, k8, yfwd, k2 tog, rep from * to last 5 stitches, k1, sl1, k1, psso, yfwd, k to end.
Row 2. P4, k1,*p12, k1 rep from * to last 4 stitches, p to end.
The problem i have is i cast on 48, then at the end of row 1 i still have 48, but as i come to the end of row 2, i p 12, but where there should be 5 sts left, so i can k1, then p 4, there are only 4 sts left? When i recount my sts i only have 47?! So i'm obviously doing something wrong but can't for the life of me figure out what it is, i've attempted this 6 times now, please help
