i'm making knitty's http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTwinecozy.html winecozy pattern and i'm stuck.

i knit 1.5 inches of 3x3 ribbing (42 stitches at this point).
then i did one row of K2, [YO, p2tog tbl, p2, YO, k2tog] to last 4 sts, YO, p2tog tbl, p2. like the pattern says. i now have 29 stitches. i did this row once, then frogged it then did it again with the same results and i'm pretty sure i'm doing it right.

next it says to knit 3x3 rib for another 1.5 inches. but 29 is not divisible by 3, so how do i do 3x3 ribbing? is there a problem with the pattern? is there some errata somewhere that i don't know about?

i hope someone can help!

I made this a while ago, but don't remember having pattern issues. The "K2, [YO, p2tog tbl, p2, YO, k2tog] to last 4 sts, YO, p2tog tbl, p2" pattern shouldn't decrease the number of stitches. You should be able to do the repeat 6 times in full. Are you maybe repeating the K2? The repeat should start with YO.

You should have 42 stitches, not 29.

the pattern is k2 (yo, dec, p 2, yo, dec] yo, dec, p2 --the yo and decreases even out so you don't lose or add any stitches.

This is why your 3 x3 rib won't work.

BEFORE you undo the row again, add a lifeline: http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php (scroll down to "fixing mistakes" see last video).

i think that what i'm doing wrong is that my yarn overs are not fullyarn overs, just putting the yarn on the other side. i need to wrap them around i think.

oops. i'll try it again. thanks for the advice!

If they loop over the needle from the purl st to the k2tog, they're still there. Could be you're forgetting one somewhere in there or doing too many k2tog or p2tog. 42-29 = 13 sts, so it looks like you're losing a couple every row.
