    Norma –

    Had trouble with Row 2: of pattern
    Row 2: (ws) B4, P1, *K11, P2* B4
    for reason I had 4 “extra” stitches at the end before B4
    Can you helpme out? Thank you for allowing FREE downloadof pattern, very much appreciated


    • Karen,

      After looking at the pattern I discovered there is a major typo.
      row 2 should read:
      Row 2: ( WS ) B4, P1, *kl,P2* B4

      It is no wonder you were having a problem. I apologize for the error and have corrected it.

      I hope this helps.

    Hi Norma –

    Thank you so very much for getting back to me so quickly. I’m a pretty “new” knitter and I was going crazy “) I am over 60 so I was just thinking that the dementia was starting to kick in “) This is a lovely pattern and again, thank you so much for your help. Maybe I have a few “good” years left in me after all “)


    • Karen,

      You are very welcome for everything. I was not able to respond sooner due to work and family commitments.
      Dementia was definitely not starting to kick in.
      If I can ever be of help,please do not hesitate to let me know.
      Have fun knitting!
