Rows 1, 2, 3, 7 and 9 are decrease rows = reduced by 10 to 46 repeat twice more gets you to 36 The last two decrease rows take 4 more away for 32. Your directions say 1st Row: K1, P1 [k1B, p1] 3 times, k2tog, k to last 10 sts, sl1, k1, psso, [p1, k1B] 3 times, p1, k1 2nd Row: k8, p to last 8 sts, k8 Yet you say that row 1 is not a decrease row. Do you think this is right or am I way off? __________________ "Trust the pattern!" Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.

I went to see my local yarn shop as well and this is what they figured out for me. Begin with 56 stitches. Row 1: Do as listed - decrease row (2 stitches = 54) Row 2: Do as listed Begin pattern: Row 1: No decrease Row 2: Row 3: Decrease as pattern suggests - 3rd row decrease Row 4: Row 5: Row 6: Row 7: Every 3rd following alternate row decrease Row 8: Row 9: Row 10: Row 11: 3rd row alternate decrease Row 12: = 6 decreases x 3 times = 18 + 2 done above in Row 1 = 20 Then do the other 2 decreases after the pattern repeat for a total of 4 Which gives me 24 stitches decreased in total which leaves me with the required 32 number of stitches. Phew! Brain Gym! Deb
