Got this pretty pattern from Halcyon Yarn for a Shell Lace Scarf by Gwynn Erickson that I am trying to knit from my alpaca yarn and the rows don't come out correctly. I cast on 29 stitches as instructed. It has a seed stitch border of 3 rows/stitches all around then row 1 of the lace patterns and all WS rows are purl. Row 2 is K2tog, *k5, yo, k1, yo, k2, sl1-k2tog-psso; repeat from * to last 2 stitches, end last repeat ssk. Every RS row ends with the "*...to last 2 stitches, end last repeat ssk." It always comes out so that the ssk comes in the middle of the knitted stitches?? For instance, here's another row where the ssk would come in the middle of the k stitches. Row 10 K2tog, *K1, yo, k3, you, k4, sl1-k2tog-psso; end last repeat ssk. Row 1 also doesn't come out right - P1, K1; repeat, end p1 so I would have 2 purl stitches at the end of the row?? What am I missing here?
