Counting By Twos Does Not End in an Odd Number
When I started the pattern, I cast on 178 stitches. The last time I checked, that was an even number. Hmmmm. So, on row 52, I decide to count all the stitches. I get to the first marker, 50 stitches, good, good. I get to the second marker, 128 stitches, good, good. I get to the second to the last stitch, 176. Not good. Not good at all. So, I solve the dilemma by increasing in the last stitch.
Moral of the story, pay attention to your knitting, more often than not it can tell you when you have miscounted.
