Need help on a pattern!
Hi! I'm fairly new to knitting, I have made a few hats and a blanket or 2. I'm doing a pattern for a beanie using circular needles where you cast on 108 stitches, and p3 k3 for a few rounds, and then start the lace pattern. The first 2 rows are just k and p, but the next row says yo, p1, k1, ssk, k2 and repeat til the end. But every time I end up with 4 stitches left. I'm not sure if its something I'm doing wrong or if its supposed to be that way? I've never knitted lace patterns before.

Thank you for the help!!

Hi and welcome to Knitting Help!
The pattern repeat is 6 sts and that works out evenly into 108 sts. It might be the way you're doing the yarn over. It doesn't use a stitch. You just move the yarn over the right needle to the back and then around to the front again to make the p1. It might help to put a marker in for the first couple of lace rounds, every 6sts or so.

Thank you!! I was doing a stitch along with the yo, and then p1, so I was counting it as 7 sts. That makes way more sense thank you again!
