Parallelogram Scarf: diagonal-purl-design changed direction

Everything was going fine, then about 4 inches into the scarf, it appears the diagonal-raised-purls switched directions. I have frogged twice back to where the reversal started. I count the stitches, I am careful to keep the K2P2 pattern, but the problem repeats for me.

What should I do when I frog the third time? Is there something to check for that would make this work?

Thank you!


Does it happen for the full length. Then I’m guessing a missed increase or decrease. My problem usually happened mid-row so as long as I was good at checking before Turin just was a lot of thinking back on 1 row. It feels like it should be mindless knitting but I found that I did have to pay attention. Good luck.

Yes it happened for the entire row.
I just took out all the rows past the point where it went wrong and now it is working. I just messed it up originally and your comment reminded me that I needed to sit by a lamp and really pay attention!
And now it is beautiful again… going the right direction.
