"I am in desperate need of some help. I was very close to finishing the Madison Shawl Knitting Pattern when I knew that I made a mistake on Row 2 but could not figure how I made the mistake. Instead of ending up with only 3 stitches at the end of Row 2, I ended up with 4. I didnt know what to do so I got rid of the extra stitch by doing this yo, s, s k2 pass the 2 slipped stitches over. Of course, this did not work out.br /I followed the directions and cast on 135 stitches.br /Row 1 says to purl the entire row. 135 stitches remain.br /Row 2 says to Knit the first 2 stitches, then yo, skpo and repeat the sequence between the s until there are 3 stitches remaining.br /My Problembr /When I finished the last sequence of yo, skpo, there were 4 stitches remaining, not 3.br /On the last 3 stitches you are supposed to do yo, sk2po (thus using up the 3 remaining stitches). But there is still 1 stitch remaining on the left needle, when there should be none left. I unravelled 4 balls worth of knitting and started over. I followed the instructions, counting my 135 stitches after casting on and completing Row 1, purling the whole row.br /I continued on to Row 2, following the directions exactly. As I finished the last sequence of yo, sKpo, I still had 4 stitches remaining instead of 3 on my left needle.br /I have gone over this pattern again and again. I finally decided to write down the number of stitches as if I were knitting the pattern, and still, I end up with 4 stitches remaining at the end of Row 2! I cant continue on with this pattern until someone tells me what I am doing wrong. I bought the wool indicated in the pattern, which was very expensive, now Im stuck because I cant finish Row 2 properly. If anyone understands what I am trying to explain, can you please advise me as to what I am doing wrong? I would love to keep working on this shawl, but I cant continue and its driving me insane. The wool is beginning to look raggedy from all of the knitting, unravelling, knitting, recounting, etc.br /I am desperate, so any advice offered to correct my work will be greatly appreciated.br /Thank You."
