  2. I’m a little confused. I can’t make out how much of the two yarns is needed. And, is this knit in the round? Should there be a step to join into a ring?

    I’m also confused about row 6 and row 14. I can’t get the stitch count at the start of each row to match the stitch count at the end. Is the stitch count supposed to increase at one of those rows and decreasse at the other, going in and out, making a ripple effect?

    I’m sorry to be a bother, but I just can’t make it out.

    Thanks so much.

    • approx 25 grams of each type of yarn. So 1 ball of each.

      Thank you, having an instruction missing doesn’t help does it?

      Row 6 should read: K2tog twice * yo k1 4 times, k2tog 4 times, repeat from * 10 times, yo k1 4 times k2tog twice.

      4+(4+8)*10 +4 +4= 132

      Row 14 should read: yo k1 twice *K2tog 4 times yo k1 4 times, repeat from * 10 times, k2tog 4 times, yo k1 twice.
      2+(8+4)*10+ 8+2 = 132.

      I really appreciate your help in getting this right.
