pattern ends up with 2 extra stitches! please help asap!
Im working on a slouchy hat pattern. started with 60 stitches, increased to 80 then the pattern changes to *K4,P2*. when i get to the end of the row i end with my last purl and still have 2 extra stitches left that i dont know what to do with.

i want to keep working on this project but am stuck on that row! if someone knows what to do with the extra 2 it would be very very helpful.

Just knit them I guess if you're going to keep on with the rib pattern. The k4, p2 repeat uses 6 sts which works with the 60 but doesn't go into the 80. Are you supposed to switch to stockinette at that point?

Row 7 seems to be missing something. There's 2 k sts from the k2 p2 on the previous rows, yet you only kfb, p2, across the row? That uses 1 of the knit sts, not both. Or should it be kfb, kfb, p2? That would give you 4 knit sts and 2 purls. Does it say you're to end up with 80 sts or that's how many you did end up with? If you kfb twice then p2, I think you should end up with 90 sts which works fine with k4, p2.

It would help if you can tell us the name of the pattern and give a link if you have it. There might be errata for it.
