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)

This is what I get:

Each number represents what you end up with after you do the called-for stitch--

3/1/7/1/5/1/1/1/1/1/5/1/7 = 35
*1/7/1/5/1/1/1/1/1/5/1/7* = 32
1/3 = 4

Plus one pattern repeat 32 = 103

Another pattern repeat 32 = 135

For Row 2 I find that you need:

3/9/5/5/5 = 27
*17/5/5/5*=32
12 =12

Plus one pattern repeat of 32 = 103

Another pattern repeat of 32 = 135

This probably looks confusing, but this is how I figure patterns out.

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.

Well, I havent actually knit all the way to the end of row 2...I keep ending up with a YO sitting in front of the second P5tog. 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....

I did it and it worked out. 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.

??????????

What are the directions for the nupp? 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.
