It didn't work.... try tho I might, I could not make it work without adding or subtracting stitches...
So, then, I decided to see if I could meet with the best knitter I know of in the condo where I live.
She knits for a living...
I spent over an hour with her as she tried it one way or the other and then finally we both gave up.
I was putting my stuff together when she said she would try one more time.
And she did... and it worked!
What the pattern is saying is:
r1. *K2tog, wrap twice, K2tog.... and repeat... so it is
*K2tog, wrap twice, K2tog, K2tog, wrap twice, K2tog and so on.
There are 2 k2tog's but only one double wrap on the first one.
Looking at it now, it seems so simple... but for some reason I could not get my head around k2tog and not wrapping. But you've done the wrap previously on the first k2tog...
I felt so dumb but she said it was a mistake waiting to happen because there didn't seem to be an explanation with the pattern about what you were trying to do.
The upshot is... once I finish the little thing I'm knitting right now, I'm going to give it a shot and see if I can't knit the darned thing. And best of all, my new friend is going to give it a go as well.
We can knit it together!
It doesn't get better than that!
Thanks to you all; I appreciate it so much and because of you I didn't give up and found not only how to do it but a new friend as well.
You guys are the best!
