So when I figure it out, there are 8 border stitches which leaves 52 in the middle. If I inc,k2, inc, k2 etc. I come out with 86 stitches. So now I am really baffled. Sorry but I cannot get this one.
Could you walk me thru how you figured it out?
Well, I am mathematically challenged so I did it graphically which takes a lot more time. What I did on in notepad was to make 60 marks like this only more of them... the red ones are the KNIT ONLY, the blue ones are KNIT stitches with INCREASE (kfb).

across ending in a k4.
You said: inc, k2, inc, k2
Are you: inc, k1, and then increasing kfb into the second knit stitch? If so then that is what you are doing wrong.
You need to k4, increase into NEXT stitch which is the 5th stitch. (6 st on your needle) k2 with NO increases, increase in the NEXT stitch (9 st on needle), etc ending with k4.
Just remember that in between the increases are two knit stitches that have NO increases. So it's basically every 3rd stitch.
Does this help?
