Hey, I had a question on the scalemate knitting pattern. For the fins, it says work 4 rows of stockinette, then underneath that, it says knit1, yo, k2tog, yo, k2tog. I figured that that is for the fifth row, but you only had cast on 5, and if you count carefully, you would have us work with seven stitches. I was just confused. Could you please clarify?
The knit one is your first stitch. The yarn over creates your second stitch, knitting the next two stitches together creates your third stitch, the next yarn over is your fourth stitch, and the final knit two together creates stitch five.
Does that help?
