I'm at my wit's end! I've posted this online and asked someone at my lys and no one can help!

I just rejoined after the neck and I'm at the part in the (corrected) pattern below that's in bold:

"Rejoin neck as follows: With first skein of yarn, p across all stitches. Break yarn from second skein, leaving a 6" tail. Next row: Work 36 sts in pattern, sl1, k3tog, psso, continue in pattern to end of row. Continue with pattern as written from line that begins "Work in main lace patt until..."

Here's the problem, though: the second I do that bolded portion, my whole lace pattern is off for the rest of the row. It's fine before that, but afterwards everything is off by a few stitches.

I'm so annoyed right now I'm considering just doing the row anyway, mistakes and all, and knitting whatever is left over and hoping no one notices that one whole row is wrong.

Is there a mistake in the corrected pattern too? Help! Smiley

This is just the opinion of someone who hasn't done this pattern before, but maybe it's supposed to be k2tog. Have you tried that? Would that give you the right count, you think?

I tried that too Sad Usually it's k2tog (in the rest of the pattern) but this row is different (I think) because you add an extra stitch before you split for the neck.

Have you double checked that you have the right amount of stitches on the needle at that point?

I'll have to go home and count again. There's part of the lace pattern that I'm using as a visual marker because it forms a distinct ridge (the sl1 k2tog psso part) and I know my current row matches up perfectly until I begin the row-specific directions (sl1 k3tog psso). And I know I'm 36 stitches in because that lines up with the edge of the neck.

But now I'm paranoid so I'll count again Smiley I'm just going crazy because it seems that if everything's lining up right, lace-wise, then there's no way I can be off, right?

How many stitches are you off by, with regards to the lace matching up?  Could you K2tog or increase somewhere else to make it line up again without creating a hole?  Did you accidentally add two extra stitches?  Just some things to think about when you take a look at it.

I am sure you'll be able to figure out a way to get it to work out.  You seem to have a good understanding of how the lace pattern's created and how it should look which will help you fix it.  Don't lose hope Smiley.
