I really want to make these socks, as i think they are LOVELY.
I would charterize myself as a medium skill level knitter, and am really struggling with this pattern.
This is the first time I have ever used a pattern with a chart, and am determined to make it work.
Here is the problem I am having:
I knitted the cuff of the stock, and split my 88 stitches on to 4 needles, and started the chart section of the pattern (Chart A).
The chart has 22 stitches per row, which I thought made sense since there are 22 stitches per needle, and the chart is to be repeated on each needle.
HOWEVER, the chart has 3 decreasing stitches per row (as well as three increases - always leaving 22 stitches on the needle after I finish each row). When I knit the decreasing stitch (k2tog, ssk and k2togtb), I dont have enough stitches to finish each row of the chart. The way I am reading the chart, I would need 3 additional stitches per needle to complete the chart as shown in the pattern.
What am I doing wrong? and am I reading the chart incorrectly?
