OK, that might be a slight exaggeration, but anyway...on to my problem.

Can anyone please help me with this?
When I knit the 4th row, which is the right side, I always end up with too few stitches at the end of the row. The last four stitches of row 4 (I'm reading left to right, for the right side) are :- k2tog, yo, k and k, then there's three more k's as the edging. But when I get to the end of the row after the yo, I only have four stitches left on the needle, where I should have five.  Huh Huh Huh

I've tried counting the stitches on each row, 19 (not including three each end for edging) on row 2 and 17 on row 17. This makes sense. I just dont know where that stitch is going!

This is very frustrating, and what I like least about knitting. Grrrrr.

Is this just a flaw in the pattern? Does it just work out anyway? Do I just ignore it? Or do I need to make some adjustment.

I'm so frustrated!!!!Thank God for Crafster.

Sorry I'm not going to be much help but the pattern is correct.

When you said you counted the stitches do you mean on the pattern or on your needle? You need to count the stitches on your needle and find out if you somehow missed a yarnover in row 2 or if the stitches got lost along the way on row 4.

Also you should be reading the chart from [right to left] except on the odd # rows [5 & 13].

Someone posted a color coded chart here on craftster. It might help you follow along better.

According to that thread many many people had trouble their first couple of tries - don't give up it is worth it. There is also a link to the "Liesel" lace scarf that lots of folks found easier - I've made both and like them both.

Thank you so much for your reply.

I was counting stitches on my needle.

Thanks for the link. I'll try again and hopefully it will come together for me.
