Did anyone have trouble with this pattern? I've knit up till the 1st row of the top shaping and the numbers are not adding up. The red is where I'm getting lost,
*CO 76 sts
*k2,m1* repeat (114 sts)

*p2, k2tog, k7, p2, k6* repeat   --When I repeat this over the 114 sts I'm getting 5 left over. I've restarted 3 times already, am I missing something? I've checked the boards and haven't seen any message of any errors, but it would seem for the above rep. to fit you need to have 119 sts for it to work out.  Huh

each repeat of this: *p2, k2tog, k7, p2, k6* uses 19 stitches (2+2+7+2+6=19) and 114divided by 19 is 6, so you should be getting 6 repeats with no stitches left over.  Are you sure you're working each part between the *'s  each time?

Thanks for the quick response !  Your right about it being repeated 6 times, I was counting the k2tog as one stitch when trying to figure out where I was going wrong. I still can't figure out why it's not working out for me though, maybe  I'll try this again tommorow and see if it makes a difference.

I haven't made this yet, so I'm not sure if this is your problem, but have you checked the errata?  If there's a fix for the pattern, it'd be here: http://www.bust.com/knithappens/oops.shtml

do you definitely have 114 stitches on the needle now?  You might be off because you;re not starting with the correct # of stitches.  On the previous row with the increases, how are you doing them?  I know there have been several times where I've increased with something that uses a stitch (like a knit front and back) and didn't take into account that it would mess up the stitch count.
