Buci~I'm glad I'm not the only one. They tell you to pick up & knit 71 sts...but the chart shows 72 sts for the extra small. So you must get an extra st on the first row. Did you find that you got that extra st? Also...for the YO at the beginning of the row...did you just wrap the yarn around the right needle before starting the row?

Thanks! Smiley

Eilene: I think the "sl 1 st pwise" business is just a technique for placing a bead.  Since you're not using beads, why bother?  I think you can just knit the 3 st.  (But you shouldn't get an extra st.  Perhaps you're creating an unintentional yo?).  Also, I have 6 st to a repeat.  Oh, and making a yo at the beginning of a row is a pain.  A pain that I am avoiding by knitting in the round!   Wink

To all: I can't believe we are finding so many errors in this pattern!  Grr! 
My main problem is that it is very hard to inc/dec in a lace pattern and the edges look funky.  I almost wish it just had a st st panel on the sides...  But I am NOT frogging now!

Thanks Veronique! I'm finished with the hems & I really want to start on the body. Now that you have answered my questions...I'm going to start it now! Would you have any idea why they tell you to pick up 71 sts on the hem & the chart says 72 sts for the extra small? Puzzled  Undecided

I am really comfused. Instead of picking up sts on the body, I decided to cast on 71 sts.(xtra small size) to test out the pattern opn the body. Somethng just isn't right. At the end of the 3rd row, I had 2 extra sts. It has got to have something to do with starting the 3rd row with a YO. & not ending the row with a Dec 2. If anyone can help me figure this out please let me know. I am really antsy to get started on the body! I have been knitting for 4 years now & have knit lots of difficult things. I'm stumped & feeling really stupid right now!! Please come to my rescue. Sad

 It IS a pain in the "you-know-what" to get the increases and decreases on the edges and stay in pattern. It's a problem working in the flat, too, Veronique. I am up to the increases now and will get to the arm decreases soon. This is such fun that I have not been working on anything else....uh...ANYTHI NG. Undecided     Everyone's butterflies look fantastic! I can't wait to see them all finished.

if the yarn overs are causing the extra stitches, i wouldn't do the yarn over. this is how i've been dealing with the pattern. :x sometimes i would have to do the yarn over though also if i'm two stitches short.

  Eilene,

  Just try the pattern with no YO at the beginning of the third row. Then see how the pattern works out. Make sure that the dec2 is in line with the stitch between the K2tog tbl and K2tog. I think there are some probs with this pattern, but haven't figured an easy fix.    Tongue  Good luck!

What about the YO at the end of the row? How the heck do you purl a YO on the next row? I think I'm going to give up on Butterfly. I have never in my 4 years of knitting been so frustrated with a knit. Now I'm losing sts. I'm going to put her down for tonight & maybe try tomorrow. The positive thing...I know where the sts go for the pattern to work out...it is just the beginning & end of the rows.

Thanks for trying to help me.
