Question about the stitch pattern

by Mimi
(Front Range, Colorado)

This is a question about interpreting a pattern. I'm knitting "For Travel" by Caitlin ffrench (ffrench on Ravelry).

The pattern reads: "Row 5. Knit 2, KFB, **YO, Knit 4, Pass the first knitted stitch over and off of your needle**, etc.

My question is when passing the knitted stitch over and off, do I pass stitch #1 of 4 (of the knit 4 sequence) off? or is it the stitch just before the last stitch knitted, which would be stitch #3?

I have been doing the latter, knit 4, pass the third knitted stitch over the fourth and off. Is that correct?

Thanks very much for your help!!!!

I went to Raverly to check out the pattern to double check (click on the link under the image to go straight to the pattern page).

It is not a great photo of the stitch pattern, but if you look closely, you can make out a gathering or bunching effect in the stitch pattern so, this confirms that you are not following the instruction correctly.

The stitch you lift up and over the end of the needle is the first stitch of the four you knit.

So you take the tip of the left hand needle, count back 4 stitches from the last stitch on the right hand needle, lift that stitch up and over the other 3 stitches in front of it on the needle and let it fall off the tip of the needle.

This decreases the number of stitches by 1 in every repeat and garters in the three other stitches at their base.
