Hi,
I saw your dishcloth and really liked it a lot. So, lastnight I started to knit it and found it to be pretty easy. Though, I'm a bit confused, row 42 you then have row 41, is this correct?
Also, at the last row 62, then it says to repeat this row until there are 4 stitches left on your needle. I was doing that, but it just doesn't make sense. It doesn't look right. Please let me know if it needs changes.
Thanks,
Patti

Row 41 should say Row 43 and there should be another row added after Row 62. I will call it Row 63 - k1, k2tog, yo, k2tog, knit across. It should say Repeat Row 63 until you have 4 stitches on the needle.

This pattern struck as very beautiful and I want to give it a try. Unfortunately, I am having an issue. I understand at row 19 that you k2,yo,knit across for all of the odd rows up till row 41. But what do you do to the other odd rows after 41? Please let me know. Thanks.

If you read row 41 it says to do row 41 for all the odd rows after. Yes there is a typo and row 41 is after row 42. Just swap them
