Thanks I'm going to have to use the K4tog,yoK4tog on all the R3 rows. I even wrote it out and still ended up with 2sts before SM

Joanne there are a couple of options for you.


1) I'd double check all the stitch counts. It can be easy to miss if there is a 3, 1, 1, 3, or a 1, 3, 3, 1 tucked away in the middle, on this round especially for some reason. If there is you'll need to work backwards and fix the doubled stitch.


2) If not and you have magicked up an extra stitch somehow check the alignment is correct with the current row of starbursts nestling between the starbursts of the previous row. If they are out of whack that is where you need to look for any extra or missed sts.


3) If you have checked both these things…

Good luck Joanne. Keep your tension on the looser side and I’m sure you’ll do just fine.
