I am knitting a hat with Bernat Chunky yarn. The pattern has 46 stitches at cast on and then is garter stitch only. To shape top the 1st row is K1 *k2tog. k7ssk Rep from *to last st. k1 I should have 38 stitches left at this point. But I do not. Can anyone help Many Thanks.

Begin with 46 stitches. K1 *k2tog, k7, ssk,* repeat from *to* last stitch, k1, end with 38 stitches. The math works out, this is what you will knit on the first decrease row: K1 K2tog, K7, ssk K2tog, K7, ssk K2tog, K7, ssk K2tog, K7, ssk K1 The four pattern repeats from *to* use 11 stitches, and each pattern repeat contains two stitch decreases (the k2tog and the ssk) This will decrease your original stitch count by eight stitches from 46 stitches to 38 stitches. Hope this helps __________________ LunadelaOssa on ravelry.com
