how many rows should I have ended up with??
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/...lorimetry.html

This is the piece I just finished... But its way bigger than I expected.. My guage was right, right weight yarn, right needles...

Maybe Im counting rows wrong???or something??Do you count each time you have to turn as 1 row??I would work to marker, count as 1 row, turn work to marker, count as 1 row...

Row 1: Work all sts in 2x2 Rib.

Row 2: Work in 2x2 Rib as set to last 2 sts, turn work.

Row 3: Sl 1, work 3 sts, place marker, work to last 2 sts, turn work.

Row 4: Sl 1, work 3 sts, place second marker, work to next marker, turn work.

Row 5: Remove marker, sl 1, work 3 sts, replace marker, work to next marker, turn work.

Repeat Row 5 fifteen times more.

Row 6: Do not remove marker. Sl 1, work to next marker, turn work. 44 sts between markers; 38 sts at each side of piece, outside of markers.

Row 7: Sl 1, work to marker, remove marker, work 4 sts, replace marker, turn work.
Repeat Row 7 seventeen times more. 2 sts remain outside markers at each end of the piece.

Row 8: Sl 1, work to marker, remove marker, work last 2 sts.
Work 1 more row, removing final marker.


Mine is big, bigger than Id like. I was hoping it would be more the size of a wide headband... Can I alter this pattern with just not making as many rows and doing it that way so its more narrow??

No, it's not you. Just about everyone who's made this ended up with one that's either too big or waaaaaay too big. Some people have CO only 80 stitches; others have repeated row 5 less times, 12, then of course did row 7 less too.

So it depends - if it's too long, CO less stitches, if it's too wide do less repeats of row 5.

IT's really funny; when you look at the picture on the pattern page of the one that's laid out flat, if you count the ribs, it looks like 90/92 stitches along the bottom edge. One person got the size spot on - by washing it and putting it in the dryer with some towels. It shrank and felted slightly and looks really good.
