So, you round down to the next number that fits the formula of: 4x+2
(4x just denotes a multiple of 4). If you came up with 104 stitches,
you round down to 100--the next-lower multiple of 4--then add 2, for
your edge stitches. So you cast on 102. The stitch pattern must be 4
stitches long, and there is a stitch on each edge that is not part of
Clear as mud?
Cute pattern, btw. I wish I could come over next week, but I work
weekday nights! Have fun anyway.
