I read through FIVE pages of projects and not one person comments on the kite problem. I'm stumped. I should not have to change the pattern, especially when I start to work with color and I'm beginning to loose one entire stripe for each color.
The exact directions read:
CO 49 stitches, marking center stitch with safety pin
row 2 (ws) knit
row 3 (rs) knit to 1st stitch before center stitch cdd, knit to end
row 4 knit
row 5 with first color indicated repeat row 3
row 6 with first color indicated repeat row 4
Repeat rows 3-6 until 3 stitches remain.
*sigh* The things we do for yarn
