I am confused by the increase that occurs in the Cast On paragraph. How do you increase 59 stitches evenly?

For those having difficulty with this pattern, I noticed that a previous explanation of why the pattern is not faulty has been removed. The K1,P1, K1 are all being done in the same stitch, which increases 2 stitches, the sl1, k2tog, psso is done immediately after that stitch and decreases two stitches, so the stitch count is being maintained all the way through the pattern. You will not complete one set of stitches without doing the other, so you are completing those instructions 40 times across the row. Hope this helps someone. Happy knitting!

I wish it had said how to increase that many stitches evenly. I tried to divide it buy it is hard to increase every 3.27 stitches! Cute blanket tho'!

The pattern increases by 2 stitches on the k1, p1, k1 in the same stitch...then decreases by 2 stitches with k2tog, psso. Hope this helps

Yes I agree, the pattern is faulty! I think the pattern rows are missing YO's or adding stitches! I should have gone with my instinct and not started this project. This is a little upsetting at this point...


Psso = pass slip stitch over. This is a decrease. This pattern increases 2 stitches by k1, p1, k1 in same stitch then decreases 2 stitches by sl1, k2tog, psso. Hope this helps. )

The pattern is faulty. It does not work? Too many psso for stitching? Doesn't make sense.

The pattern is not "faulty" it does work, it increases at the exact same rate that it decreases, so the stitch count is always maintained. Someone else has already explained in detail how this pattern is constructed and works out beautifully.

interesting ideas.
