Hi there! Grin

I am tackling the babydoll dress from the latest spring/summer 07' issue of vogue knitting. ( its on the cover )

http://www.vogueknitting.com/200703/index.shtml

and I am having a bit of trouble with the pattern

for the lace edging around the sleeves it gives you a 6 row pattern repeat, which works fine until the 6th row

the instructions are as follows

cast on 8 sts
Row 1: Yo, p2tog, (k1, p1, k1, p1, k1) in the next st, yo, p2tog, k1, yo 3 times, k2 -15sts.

Row 2: K3, p1, k2, yo, p2tog, k5, yo, p2tog - 15 sts.

Row 3: Yo, p2tog, k5, yo, p2tog, k6 - 15 sts.

Row 4: K6, yo, p2tog, k5, yo p2tog - 15 sts.

Row 5: Yo, p2tog, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, k2tog, k6 - 13 sts.

Row 6: Bind off 3 sts, k2, yo, p2tog, SK2P, yo, p2tog - 8 sts.


my problem is that when you add up all the sts used in row 6 it only adds up to 12....and if you manage to finish that row you have 9 sts which is one too many to restart the repeat...


AM I CRAZY HERE

any help would be great!



Thanks

there are no posted corrections on the website

I've sent them an email......but..... who knows
I have sent them info about corrections before and received no reply and noticed no updates on their site.

I was thinking that maybe the k2 after the bind off sts might be a k2tog....

I just don't know

and since its lace I don't want to try to figure it out by myself


yeesh! Sad

Is `SK2P' = sl 1, k2tog, psso? Have you checked the abbreviations section to see if thats it?

ah, see, I assumed it was sl 2, k1, po (usuing up 3 sts).  So not an error; just odd abbreviation! Smiley

Did you check you didn't accidently BO 2 sts instead of 3 in row 6?

I'm sure its the pattern

see:

you have 13 sts on your needle

bind off 3 sts,     = 3 sts
k2,                    = 2sts
yo, p2tog,          = 2sts
SK2P,                = 3 sts
yo, p2tog,          = 2 sts
--------------------------
9 sts left           12 sts used

there is one extra unused stitch
