I've restarted this project now twice due to stitch number issues. I am currently just finishing row 2 and have ended up with 8 too few stitches. Additionally, I was only able to knit 3 instead of 4 at the end. Before, I had dropped a stitch (and had 240) and was able to finish the row fine. What's going on I want to move forward?!
