It all adds up to me. After row 2, you will still have the same # of stitches that you cast on. Then row 3 is a purl row and row 4 is six repeats of what's inside the *, 17sts each repeat, which adds up to 102 PLUS the K2 at the beginning of the row should bring you to 104sts.

Hi KK,

I counted the stitches for each row at both the beginning and end of each row, and I'm OK through row 4.
Row 5 is funky though, but I think knitqueen's interpretation of the row 5 directions would solve this.
Then at Row 13 it should say *P4, P2tog tbl, P9*, repeat between *, then P2.

BTW on Row 4 you USE 17 stitches for each repeat (not counting the K2 at the beginning of the row), but you GET 15 stitches in each repeat at the end which is what you need for Row 5. Row 2 both uses and generates 17 stitches in the repeat, so unless you're dropping a YO somewhere when you purl Row 3 there should be enough stitches to finish Row 4.

I'm going to do an entire repeat of this on 19 stitches when I get home, just to make sure it really works. The total stitch number and the number between * * are the same from the end of one row to the beginning of the next so it SHOULD work.

KK, I'll email back tonight if it DOESN'T work. (My computer is at the office, so I'll have to come back, and will only do that if I find another mistake. Fortunately, it's only 2 miles from home to work.)

This pattern WILL NOT DEFEAT the combined KNITPOWER of KH!

You have found the BEST lacy shawl patterns. Travelling Vines and Cozy and now this one.

SO MANY SHAWLS, SO LITTLE TIME!!

Kelly,

I did a run-through of the full 16 rows on a sample of 19sts. It all came out fine, and I arrived back at 19sts by the end of the 16 rows in order to start the lace sequence all over again.

Might I suggest you try the same, rather than get frustrated when it doesn't work out over 104 stitches?? It might be easier to isolate what's going wrong on a smaller sample too.

Good luck!!
