For one of the rows the instruction is Yfwd, (k1 p1)twice, k1 My doubt is do I need to take Yfwd each time I do k1 p1 or do I do the Yfwd only at the starting of the row? I did a math calculation by taking the Yfwd only once and am falling short of stitches. Plzzzzzz help.....

Which would be: Yfwd, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, and just keep repeating that. For example, if you were supposed to do that 10 times, and began with 50 sts, that would add on 10 sts and you would have 60. Does that make sense with the actual numbers you're supposed to get?

A yo/yf doesn't use any sts, btw, it just adds one. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

I think you need to do another row 7-10 repeat. Doing rows 7-10 65 more times is 264 rows. Each row adds a stitch and you started the first row 7 with 7 sts + 264 rows = 271 sts. You have 11 sts less and 11 is how many you have at the end of the first row 10. __________________ sue- knitting heretic
