I've tried ending with 4 like the CO, but have the same problem. I've also tried using every needle size from 6 to 10.5. I'm INC/DEC at the rate the pattern calls, counting stitches to be doubly sure and have successfully made several other dishcloths with varying patterns, so I don't feel like quite such a failure
Is there a way to post a picture here? Could that help you identify my problem?
