I'm knitting a baby sweeter. I started with 60 stitches. On row nine it says to...... Knit 4 *increase in the next stitch K2* repeat between the stars across to end K 4 (78 stitches)
But I ends up with 86 eight stitches to many. What am I doing wrong? How can I correct this?
I don't know what you are doing wrong. I have checked the math on the row instructions and you should end up with the stated 78 stitches.
Are you doing the increase into a stitch or between stitches?
Knit 4 stitches, *knit into the front and back of the next stitch, knit 2 stitches, rep from * another 16 times - at this point you should have 5 stitches left (60 - 4 - (17 * 3)= 5), knit into the front and back of the next stitch, knit to the end of the row (another 4 stitches).
Follow these instructions and you should have 78 stitches on your needle.
