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?!

HELP!!!! With row two and the yo k4 or yo k5 by the end of the row I have too many stitches. What to do?? Joy

No I did not think the reply was helpful, it still leaves me with the conundrum of how to continue. The pattern is lovely and it would be nice to figure out how to master this piece.

I believe it should be yo K2tog 4 or 5 times which ever you are on. When you yo you are increasing by 1 so you would have to do a K2tog so that you are not increasing your stiches.

the p2tog is in brackets indicating that this is to be repeated on its own-no corresponding yo, therefore that will account for the yo's else where in the pattern. K5, * [yo, k1] 5 times, yo, [p2tog] 10 times, [yo, k1] 4 times; repeat from * to last 4 sts, k4. the p2tog 10X will reduce 10 stitches per row, which is exactly how many yo's there are in the pattern section. I suspect that you are working a yo before each p2tog-there is just the yo at the start of this section, then it is p2tog 10X to reduce this section of pattern by 10 stitches.
