    I am having trouble with the mistake stich square. It is not coming out right and I have tried it several different times and it always comes out the same. I knitted a mistake stich scarf for my son a couple of months ago and it turned out fine. Is it possible that there is a misprint in the pattern? Or am I reading it wrong? Help!!

      Thanks for stopping by, Charlotte. It is always possible there is a mistake, but it has been tech edited and quite a few other knitters have made it successfully since 2014. Can you tell me a bit about the problem you are having?
