It's been too long since I've tried to follow a pattern.
I am using Peachtree's wonderful apple pattern, found here:http://pcakeknits.blogspot.com/2007/01/fruit-people.html
I am already fed up with the DPNs (just because I hate them), but I have successfully made a hat with DPNs before.
Anyways, following the pattern, I did the cast-on row, then the next four rows, but I have more than 18 stitches. I have 22 for some reason. I am baffled.
Am I interpreting the instructions correctly?
Does "k1, kfb around- 18" mean knit one st, kfb for the rest of that row, end up with 18 sts?
