I have a Deborah Norville book with a lace scarf & shawl pattern designed by Kay Meadors. I cannot get row 2 to come out to 29 stitches, however I try. I can only come out with 28. The instructions read: "Instructions are written for scarf with numbers for shawl in braces {}. Circle all the numbers pertaining to the one you are making." I'm using sock yarn and size 8 needles. Here's the pattern. Can anyone figure this out?
EYELET EDGE
Cast on 33 {93} loosely
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: (right side): Slip 1 as if to knit, K1, K2 tog, YO, K1* YO, [slip 1 as if to knit, K2 tog, PSSO], K2tog, YO, K1; repeat from * across to last 4 sts. YO, SSK, K2: 29 {79}sts.

Patty H, I knit these 2 rows and got 29 sts.--
When you get to the last 4 sts yo,ssk,k2 are you by any chance letting the yo slide off the needle as you do the ssk--it [yo] does look out of place and awkward--it's the only thing I could see that might cause problems. lol

Thanks so much for answering so promptly. I finally realized after seeing that you got 29 that I was totally mis-reading the last K2 as K2tog. Don't ask me why I thought that "tog" was in there. It is so nice to be on a forum where people really care about your problems.
God Bless You!
