Help with cable lace afghan increases and decreases, please!
I just started knitting a beautiful lace and cable afghan today for my boyfriend's sister's wedding present! I consider myself to be an intermediate knitter, and the pattern I picked looked a bit challenging, but I felt up to the challenge! However, I came upon a stumbling block in only the first row.
In row 1, the instructions are as follows: K3. *K3. K2TOG. K4. YRN. P2. (K2. YFWD. SL1. K1. PSSO) 3 times. P2. YON. K4. SL1. PSSO. K3. Rep from * to last 3 stitches. K3.
However, I am losing 3 stitches per repetition because my passed slipped stitches are not being replaced. Is that correct? I think I am missing something here.
I also foresee the same problem in row 3, where the directions are: K3. *K1. K2TOG. K4. YFWD. K2. P2. (K2. YFWD. SL1. K1. PSSO.) 3times. P2. K2. YFWD. K4. SL1. K1. PSSO. K1. Rep from * to last 3 sts. K3.
Any help or insight you could give me would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
