    Hello. Why is on rows3,5, and7 ,more than 13stitches for this to manage? I add the stitches up and something is not right.May be I do something wrong. Please explain it to me.

      Hi Dina, The P3tog is done only in between of repeats i.e. at the end of each one of these rows you only do P2tog instead of doing P3tog and P2tog. By this your number of stitches stays fixed at 13 stitches.
