Can't understand lace pattern
The pattern for a lacey hat goes:
CO 48 sts
Row 1: K14( seenote) , pm, K2Tog, YO, K2, P1, K2Tog, K2, YO, P3Tog, YO, K1, YO, P1, pm, K20
Row 2: S1, K19, sm, K1, P8, K1, P4, sm, P5 -turn
My question is that I am following the written pattern but the stitches don't add up. In the first row, I k2tog, yo, k2, I didn't yo and then p1 and then didn't yo again, then k2tog, k2, yo, p3tog, yo, k1, yo, p1, pm, k20. Just as the pattern says.
Then the next row, the stitches between the markers are still short one stitch. What am I doing wrong? The pattern varies, in some rows the stitches between the markers add up nicely, but in some, I would be short one or two stitches. Please help!!
