I am having problems with row 1 of the lace chart. I have ripped out and recounted stitches six times but I still end up with more stitches on my needle at the end of row 1. Anyone else having this problem?

The pattern instructions are in the book Knitting In The Details. The pattern is for lace and beads.

The instructions are as follows:

Cable cast on 5, cast off 2, repeat 16 more times, knit 2, total 53 stitches. (this technique creates a pico and I have no problems with this)Work in stockinette for 4 rows. Begin lace chart: Row 1.Knit 3, yo, knit 5, purl, K2tog, yo, k12, k2tog, yo, k2tog, yo, k 12, ssk, yo, knit 1, purl, knit 5, yo knit 3. At this point I have too many stitches on my needle.

When I counted the stitches in row 1 I got 53 how many are you supposed to have? Each of the K2together makes 1 stitch. The ssk is 2 stitches. I don't see where your problem is unless you had more than 53 stitches on your needles when you started the lace row.

There are several patterns that increase in one row and bring the number of stitches back to the original several rows later. I'm knitting one now that is a basic 8 stitch pattern but it increases to 9 on row 2 and doesn't come back to 8 until row 12.

I didn't see the chart but looking at it, it doesn't look like that's the problem. I have a pattern for some smaller diamonds that look similar but don't have the problem.

There may well be a mistake in the pattern. Printers don't always get it right. You may need to email the publisher and ask if there's an errata sheet.

these are diamond patterns and a lovely design. There are places in the chart where you add beads and other places that there is a 'no stitch" but this isn't the problem. Thanks for all your help.
