Chevron Stripes -- help?
So, I've tried the chevron stripe towel, using the corrected instructions (with the repeat being k2tog, k2, kfb in next 2, SKP), but I'm still having trouble: I'm ending up a few stitches short to finish the last repeat before knitting the last 5 stitches. Has anyone else had trouble with this? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
Hrm . . .
So I'm not gunna.
(At least, not before this year's Dulaan deadline. They'll get done . . . eventually.)

Big Dotty Pillow
Pattern: Big Dotty Cushion from Mason Dixon Knitting by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne
Yarn: Rowan Handknit Cotton in 205 (Linen), 239 (Ice water), 253(Tope), and 315 (Double chocolate).
Needles: Size 6 clover circulars.
Timeline: A month?
I gave this to my brother for Christmas. Of course, it was still on the needles... I finished it up a few days afterwards, and my mom sewed it up with a denim fabric back that closes with velcro. This pattern was so much fun! It is amazing what slipped stitches can do. It looks much harder than it actually was...
