I can't see them either, but that reminds me of when I tried to crochet. My square baby blanket turned into a trapezoid. I gave it to the dog.

Yes, they are. I'm not sure how that happened, but it is a cute cape

The scarf looks real nice.

This same thing happened to me. How do you prevent not adding stitches? What if you do, do you know how to subtract stitches?


Hopefully that makes sense.

I think this happens with many first projects.

Amanda: If you count your stitches at the end of each row you can be on top of it before it gets out of hand. It's usually a case of getting the yarn wrapped around the needle an extra time along the way and as you knit more this will become less frequent. When you are knitting the next row you will likely come across a few stitches that just seem different to knit and those are the yo's (yarn overs) that you've likely accidentally made. If you know that's the case you can either go back and fix them or just drop them off. If you're just making a first project and are uncomfortable with those options then I'd just knit two stitches together spaced out along your work to get it back to the same number you started with. I hope this makes sense to you.
