I have a question on a pattern from the book, Knit Prayer Shawls by Leisure Arts - would anyone here happen to have knit this pattern? it is called:
"Comfort Abides" [p. 24 ]
I am having difficulty getting the stitches to add up to the required amount.
It might just be a counting problem of my own; but have tried checking the site, see no errata/corrections for this particular pattern.
thanks for any advice/suggestions ~

Can you post a picture of it or the pattern. I am new to knitting but if it is the one I think it is it looks like a feather and fan pattern. If you don't yarn over to make up for the stitches knitted together it can through off the count. Good luck!

Yes - and that is why I couldn't understand because I re-counted stitches on all row - but - last night, I figured it out! It wasn't a row error, but an overall counting mistake I made - between the last row and going back to the first row in the sequence, you are increasing by 3 stitches not only 2, just for between those two rows! So those *extra* stitches when counted correctly, all turns out okay! Whew! Now I can go back to enjoying knitting and not worrying over what the final count will turn out!
[in short words: I was doing fine, and the shawl would have turned out having the required stitches, I just didn't count right!]
