I have exactly 8 weeks to finish this masterpiece. I am stuck on row 12 and desperately need some advice. The pattern book is "Our best knit baby afghans." The pattern is called a shower of love. Here is the issue:
Row 11 has 179 stitches and row 12 increases to 195. Here is exactly the way this reads.
K1, (P1,K1) 3 times, YO, SSK, K1, K2 tog, *YO, K2, increase, K2, YO, SSK, K1, K2 tog; repeat from * across to last 7 stitches, YO, K1, (P1, K1) 3 times: 195 sts.
Three times I have very carefully knitted this row chanting the steps to avoid mistakes. I finish my last repeat and count the sts on my left needle, and I have 9 left. Not 7. Apparently at least one other person on the www has had this issue but no fix was mentioned. I would greatly appreciate any advice from someone who has knitted this gorgeous pattern. I am afraid it will mess up the cables. Either post or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
