Stitch count help
Pattern:
http://www.classiceliteyarns.com/Web...63/Issue63.php

Swatching with an alternate yarn to see if I like the effect.

The lace pattern is a mulitple of 2 + 1.

I CO 21 sts. 2 sts on each side for edge, so that leaves 17 sts. 16 (which is a mulitple of 2) +1. However, I cannot get row 2 to work with that many sts. Where am I making the mistake?

It looks like row 2 uses an even number of stitches, so the 16 plus 1 won't work out evenly. I'd try slipping that last stitch and see how it works.

So is the 2 +1 wrong as printed?

No, I think it's correct. I just suspect that the Row 2 pattern doesn't finish at the end of a repeat, but rather with the first stitch of the repeat.

Or there's a typo, and R 2 should end with a k1... let me work up a sample and get back to you, I think it works... sl 1, p1, psso, yo... it might be right.

Thanks. It seems like they should mention that in the pattern.

Okay, I did up a couple rows... I'd take out the k1 at the beginning of row 1; it serves no purpose and the sts work out fine without it on a multiple of 2, no plus. Perhaps another st was intended on row 2, but I don't think you'll need it. Right now having the k1 in there makes it sort of unbalanced as that make the pattern have 2 sts at the start, but a YO at the end. Just my thoughts...

Thanks Sue. I did does knit up correctly that way. And Classic Elite just posted the corrected pattern too. It seems that all of Wenlan Chai's (Twinkle Knits) patterns have errors.
