Pattern woes!!
I have only been knitting for a short time but I have completed a pair of socks by reading a pattern. I found a pattern that looked simple for a baby sweater. I knitted the first 2 rows in a kn stitch as the pattern states and then began the next two rows which are to be repeated 12 times as a "set-up pat".

Row 1: K9 for left front; yo, k1 for seam st; yo, k3 for sleeve; yo, k1 for seam st; yo, k18 for back; yo,k1 for seam st; yo,k3 for sleeve; yo, k1 for seam st; yo, k9 for right front - 54 sts.

Row 2: K4, purl across to last 4 sts, k4.


My problem is that when I repeat the pattern on the 3rd (and 5th, 7th, etc.) the pattern doesn't match because I have done several yo stitches to increase. When I get to the end of row 3, I don't have enough stitches to complete the row. I looked at the photo and it wouldn't make sense not to finish the row. Is there something that I am missing?

Yes, the YOs increase the sts, but you notice that on Row 1, there's a YO, k1, and another YO; these sts separate the sections and are where you do the following increases. So just do a YO on either side of that single K1 stitch and it will work. There's going to be 2 more sts per section every time you do an increase row.

Sorry..I still don't understand...when I do row 3, for example, the pattern still ends with 54 sts, but when I get to row 4, I knit the sts including the yo from row 3 and I now have 62 sts.

So when I get to row 5, I have a pattern for 54 sts but I have 62 sts.
This will increase by 8 sts every 2 rows.

How do I adjust for that?

Thanks for the help!

You have to knit 2 more sts for each section every RS row.

So R 3 is - K11 for left front; yo, k1 for seam st; yo, k5 for sleeve; yo, k1 for seam st; yo, k 20 for back; yo,k1 for seam st; yo,k5 for sleeve; yo, k1 for seam st; yo, k11 for right front - 62 sts.

R 5 - K 13, yo, k1 for seam st; yo, k7 for sleeve; yo, k1 for seam st; yo, k22 for back; yo,k1 for seam st; yo, k7 for sleeve; yo, k1 for seam st; yo, k13 for right front - 70 sts.

Etc....

I encountered an issue with this solution...each row increases by 8 sts with yo and if I increase by 2 kn sts in each section that is equivalant to 10 sts. That leaves me off by 2. Any ideas? Any section that I shouldn't increase?

Check again that there's 2 YOs on either side of the single knit stitch, you must have left out a pair.

Ooops I did say say 11, I forgot the front was in 2 parts, so after the first row of incs, you'll have 9 for each front, 5 for each sleeves and 20 on the back. Sorry for confusing you.
