Hi, I am knitting your Yet to be Named baby cardigan. I am at the row where I start the star stitch. I am totally confused. I have taken it out several times. It seems like the way it is explained, I will lose stitches.
I think what I am not understanding is after the parentheses you have “in the same 3 stitches”. If I am purling 3 stitches together twice, I feel I am losing stitches.
Could you please clarify for me?
Thank you for the free pattern, it is lovely.
You should work it like this: Purl 3 together, without dropping the 3 sts off the needle, yo, then purl those same 3 stitches again. Then you will have made 3 new sts into those 3 🙂
