Also, thank you everyone for your advice. I think I was just doing the YO wrong, which is weird, because I used to do it exactly how you all explained, until I showed it to someone and they told me an easier way. Now I'm thinking this new way is what was causing all the problems. We'll see. But I'd still love a pattern of this that gives you stitch counts on each row, just so I (we) know if what I'm doing is right...

Thanks all!

When you do a yo it only makes one new stitch. If the instructions say yo k4 that is EXACTLY what you should do. I do not know which pattern that you are using but the Craftown pattern does give stitch count at the end of each increase row. Here it is.

Rnds 1, 2: K each st.

Rnd 3: (0, k 1) 8 times (16 sts, counting each 0 as 1 st).

Rnds 4, 5, 6: K each st.

Rnd 7: (0, k 1) 16 times.

Rnds 8 through 12: K 32 sts (8 sts on each needle).

NOTE: Hereafter, work directions as given twice across each of 4 needles unless otherwise stated.

Rnd 13: K 2 tog, thread over twice, sl 1 st as if to k, k 1, psso.

Rnd 14: K 1, drop next 0 from left hand needle, in next 0 work k 1 and (p 1, k 1) 4 times, k 1 (22 sts on each needle).

Rnds 15 through 24: K 22 sts on each needle.

Rnd 25: 0, k 11 sts.

Rnd 26 and all even rnds unless otherwise stated: K each st on each needle.

Rnd 27: 0, k 1, 0, k 11.

Rnd 29: 0, k 3, 0, k 4, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, k 4.

Rnd 31: 0, k 1, 0, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, 0, k 1, 0, k 3, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, k 3.

Rnd 33: 0, k 3, 0, in next st make k 1 and p 1, 0, k 3, 0, k 2, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, k 2 (34 sts on each needle).

Rnd 35: 0, k 1, 0, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, 0, k 4, 0, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, (0, k 1) twice, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, k 1.

Rnd 37: 0, k 3, 0, k 2, sl 1, k 1, psso, k 2 tog, k 2, 0, k 3, 0, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso.

Rnd 39: 0, k 1, 0, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, 0, k 2, sl 1, k 1, psso, k 2 tog, k 2, 0, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, (0, k 1) twice.

Rnd 41: (0, k 3) twice, sl 1, k 1, psso, k 2 tog, (k 3, 0) twice, k 1 (38 sts on each needle).

Rnd 43: 0, k 1, 0, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, 0, k 3, sl 1, k1, psso, k 2 tog, k 3, 0, sl 1, k 2 tog, psso, (0, k 1) twice.

Rnds 44, 45, 46: K 38 sts on each needle.

Rnd 47: (0, k 1) twice, 0, k 3, (sl 1, k 1, psso) twice, (k 2 tog) twice, k 3, (0, k 1) 3 times.

Rnds 48 through 51: K 42 sts on each needle.

Rnd 52: (0, k 1) 4 times, (sl 1, k 1, psso) 3 times, (k 2 tog) 3 times, (k 1, 0) 4 times, k 1.

Rnds 53 through 56: K 46 sts on each needle.

Rnd 57: (0, k 1) 5 times, (sl 1, k 1, psso) 3 times, (k 2 tog) 3 times, (k 1, 0) 5 times, k 1.

Rnds 58 through 61: K 54 sts on each needle.

Rnd 62: 0, (k 1, 0) 5 times, (sl 1, k 1, psso) 4 times, (k 2 tog) 4 times, (0, k 1) 6 times.

Rnds 63 through 66: K 62 sts on each needle.

Rnd 67: 0, (k 1, 0) 5 times, k 2, (sl 1, k 1, psso) 4 times, (k 2 tog) 4 times, k 2, (0, k 1) 6 times.

Rnds 68 through 71: K 70 sts on each needle.

Rnd 72: (0, k 1) 7 times, (sl 1, k 1, psso) 5 times, (k 2 tog) 5 times, (k 1, 0) 7 times, k 1.

Rnds 73 through 76: K 78 sts on each needle.

Rnd 77: 0, (k 1, 0) 7 times, (sl 1, k 1, psso) 6 times, (k 2 tog) 6 times, (0, k 1) 8 times.

Rnds 78 through 81: K 86 sts on each needle.

Rnd 82: 0, (k 1, 0) 7 times, k 2, (sl 1, k 1, psso) 6 times, (k 2 tog) 6 times, k 2, (0, k 1) 8 times.

Rnds 83 through 86: K 94 sts on each needle.

Rnd 87: K 1, * k 2 tog, 0, k 2 tog, turn, p 1, in next 0 make k 1 and (p 1, k 1) twice, p 1, sl 1, turn. Bind off 7 sts (scallop made 1 st remains on right hand needle). Repeat from * around, ending with k 2 tog, 0, k 1, turn and complete last scallop. Fasten remaining loop to first st and fasten off. Starch lightly and press.

guess I'm just not understanding it. Now this just means I have to go

back and figure out my mistake! Ugh. Basically I'm confused when it

says YO and then Kwhatever, I always minus 1 k. Like if it says YO,

K4. I do a yarn over(which is making 2 knits) and then I knit 3. Not

sure if that's right, but it always got me to where I needed to be

within each marker without going over or under so I figured this was

what I should do. Maybe this isn't right after all.

I wish there was something that told us how many stitches we should

have on each round. That would help tremendously!

Thanks,
