It looks like you may not have decreased at the end of the row as well as the beginning.
Hi Brenda,pagebrenda said:I am knitting a beginner's tank top. Cast on 73(79, 87, 93) sts. Work in St st until piece measures 13"/33cm from beg, end with a WS row.
Next (dec) row (RS) K1, SSK, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1. Work 1 row even. Rep last 2 rows 15 (19, 22, 24) times more, then work dec row every 4th row 1 (0, 0, 0) time 39(39, 41, 43)sts.
I have worked last 2 rows 24 times (I cast on 93). I have 69 sts left on my needle. I should have 43 sts left. What did I do wrong?
12 slants are not enough, you should have 24 slants....you are to repeat the 'TWO' rows 24 times, not 24 rows....when you have done 48 rows, 24 slants on each side, your sts will be right.....you're doing fine...it's correct up to this point...pagebrenda said:I don't understand. On the knit row at the begining, I kinitted the first st. and knitted until I reached the last 3 sts. I k2tog and knitted the last st. The next row (WS) I purl. I counted my slants. I have twelve left slants (SSK) and twelve right slants (k2tog). I am counting as my 24 rows. Is this correct? Or should I do another 24 slants total?
