i am trying to begin this pattern - but when i read the free pattern it says knit in multiples of 4 =2 edge stiches

the pattern says : every row k1 *k2, wrap yarn around right needle twice, p2 tog* k1 doing the math that woud sem to increase 1 stitch every repeat????


should it say K1 *k2 tog, wrap yarn around right needle twice, p2 tog * k1 ????? that would keep the repear pattern to 4 stitches.

K2, yo, P2 tog = 4 STS. 2 knitted ones, 1 yo and 1 left from the p2tog
The wrap twice will only be one stitch

The k1 is at the the beginning and the last st.(edge). Otherwise it’s knit2 purl2= 4 sts
The wrap st is a long st, but still 1 sts.

Every Row K1[edge st], *k2, wrap yarn around right needle twice, p2 tog* k1[edge st]. Drop one of each of the yn over loops on the way back, this makes a bigger hole.

if it is this pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/moms-easy-lace-stole
then, the doubled yarn over is knit as one stitch on the next row (knit one yo, let the other one drop) ... it makes for a larger eyelet hole... which is part of the design.
At least, that is what it seems to me, when I look at the finished project. It is a very new pattern, I believe it could have been explained better in the pattern.
ETA: I see that rainie has the same idea.

I've recently finished a scarf that said to wrap twice, but a friend kindly told me it needed Three wraps or it would be to tight.....you only knit once into that stitch you drop the extra wraps

K1 is not part of the repeat. The repeat is only the section between the asterisks.
There are no increases in the pattern. The k2tog offsets the YOs.

Ok, I just did 4 rows of this pattern and the YO twice is actually just putting the yarn in position to do the P2tog. No dropping any YOs!! It's a really pretty pattern :)
