I need help... umm.. again...
I wasn't for sure where this went I hope I picked the right spot and hope you guys aren't getting tired of me yet

I was looking through my shawl patterns and decided on the prayer shawl for my other question however... I had told my dh that I would make his grandma a shawl and stumbled upon Cat's Paw Lace Shawl here is the link http://www.freepatterns.com/fp_pdfs/...Lace_Shawl.pdf

Ok it says Multiple of 12sts + 1 so I chose 13 just to see how it was gonna look...

The first Row says: K1, *k2tog, yo, rep from *, K1

When I do this at the end I have two stiches left.. not K1

however for Row 9 (all in between are knit rows) it says K1, *k3, ssk, yo, k1,yo, k2tog, k4, rep from *

All 13 stitches are counted for... I can't figure out what I"m doing wrong on that first Row.. I read on the fringe about 8 caston so I did 8 just to see well Row 1 worked but Row 9 did not ROTFLOL ummmm please help... TIA

When it says multiple of 12 + 1, it means that the pattern repeats are 12 stitches each with one extra stitch at the beginning or end.

If you try the pattern on 12 stitches instead of 13, it should work out.

Yet in the row 9 that you mention, there are 13 stitches accounted for. Obviously that row won't work if you only cast on 12. Am I confused or what??? :thinking:

That k1 at the beginning is the 13th (or +1) stitch. When they say in a pattern X + Y, the X is the number of stitches in the pattern, and the Y are the 'extra' stitches, like the ones on the edge.

I'm sorry Ingrid but I just don't understand.. I'm use to seeing CO this many stitches I wondered why that knitting calendar was coming out..

So do I CO 12 or 13 sts.. I'm sorry I'm just so confused...

For one repeat, cast on 12 + 1; for two repeats, cast on 24 + 1; for three, 36 +1.

To really see the pattern, I'd do a few repeats. Maybe it just doesn't work well on one repeat.
