32 Stitches Short

Elizabeth’s Question

Hello Aoibhe Ni.
I am currently working on your Lunula Shawl. 

I have reached the end of Panel 3, but I still have about 32 stitches left, and I CANNOT figure out what I am doing wrong!  Please can you tell me where I am messing up?

Hi, Elizabeth!

32 stitches is a lot to be short at the end of a panel, so I had a good chew on my thinking pencil, and I think I’ve found where your Lunula went astray.

Panel 3 includes the instruction:
“SR23, YO, 36 L40tr”

All the other instructions prior to this one contained 4 Linked stitches, instead of the 36 you see in the instruction above.

I think what’s happened here is that you did 4 Linked stitches, accidentally leaving off the remaining 32 by accident.
That’d certainly account for the discrepancy.

I do hope this helps!

Happy Crocheting!
