To be honest...

I really hate Mariah. I hate everything about the process of this goddamn pattern. I hate that THERE IS NO LOGIC TO ANYTHING and I hate I've metaphorically ripped out so much hair over this. Maybe I'm not good at math, but could someone tell me if I'm right here?

C0 46 stitches for a small.

Do two repeats of the pattern. It's a 22 stitch repeat normally, but for this pattern, you end a stitch early. So it's a 21 stitch repeat.

1 + 42 + 2 = 45.

NOT 46. NOT 46 AT ALL.

oh god someone out there has to have done this pattern and can help me.

I've never seen the pattern but the math works out if you assume a slipped stitch on each end before the instructions for edging... is this possible? Does it say so anywhere in the text? is this a british pattern?

Slip 1, Knit 1, Pattern Repeat x2, Knit 2, Slip 1 = 46.

Good luck!
