Not getting the right st count...
Can anyone take a look at this and tell me what Im doing wrong? I start with 103 sts. As I count, (given my POOR math skills) Row one leaves me with 142. Row 2 only needs 135. Im ALL confusled!

(A "NUPP" creates 5 sts in 1...kinda like a bobble)

First row- 35 before the *, 96 between the *, 4 after the *= 135 Second row- 27 before the *, 96 between the *, 12 after the * = 135 Even if you're still confused, just try it. I am sure it will work out. You're going to have to trust me here. __________________ "Trust the pattern!" Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.

That shouldnt be...all the P5togs should be the NUPP sts. Its driving me nuts, because if I had made a mistake on row 1, you would think that it wouldnt come out even at the end....

On the second row, you do purl into the previous row's yo before you p the nupp stitches together, and purl into a yo after the nupp. So I K the first 3, p the next 9, the last of which was the yo. Then the nupp Then the next five, the first and last of which were the yo's. Then the nupp The 17, first and last were yo's. nupp p 5, again first and last were yo's etc. ?????????? __________________ "Trust the pattern!"

Could it be that in doing it, you're somehow making another yo? I just did the yo, k fbf (didn't want to bother with a five stitch nupp), yo, etc. __________________ "Trust the pattern!"
