Hi, I think I want to cry. :crying: Knitting is not easy (for me). I keep posting about my errors and nothing else! I am knitting a fitted tank and I am at the shape armhole part. The directions were written as follows:
(First, I want to say I am supposed to start this part of the pattern with 74 stitches which I did.)
Bind off 3 sts at beg of next 2 rows. Then, dec 1 st each end every other row 8 times, ending with RS row complete.
Under Pattern Notes it reads: (I hadn't noticed this!)
Work decreases as follows:
For left slant at beginning knit row: Sl1, k1, pass sl st over K st.
For right slant at end of k row: K2tog
*Work decreases one stitch in from edge, leaving one selvedge stitch. This will make it easier to pick up stitches for finishing.
Now, this is what I did:
I did the bind off. But, when I started the decreases I did SSK at the beginning of the row and K2tog at the end of the row – for every other row. (Is this where I went wrong??)
I have done this two times now so I should have 70 stitches but NOT ME…I have 72 stitches.
And, to top it all off I have a hole about three rows down.
What do I do??????? (Banging head against the computer!)
