i am sort of new at knitting but i am enjoying it.but i have a question 2 ask about a pattern am doing,
at the mo i have 56sts and the next stage is K6 (K3tog) 6 times, K8 (K3tog) 6 times,K6 i should end up with 32sts can some 1 help thanx
When you knit 3 together 6 times, you are decreasing 12 stitches (2 stitches decreased with each K3tog - 2 X 6 = 12) Since you do this twice during the row, you should be decreasing a total of 24 stitches. 56-24=32.
I would be sure that you are doing all 12 K3tog's - it sounds like you are missing one. Also, be sure that you are actually knitting 3 stitches together every time - it is more common to K2tog, so maybe you are doing that on some stitches?
