Help with pattern: too many stiches  
Pattern here

I've been trying to knit some fingerless gloves for some time now. I'm relatively new to knitting, but I've been following the pattern and getting help, however for some reason I keep ending up with way too many stitches on my needle. I'm not sure where I'm going wrong, but I think it might have something to do with the k2tog part. If anyone could give me any advice on what I'm doing wrong, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Your pattern link didn't work.

Also, you might get more replies over at knitting; it tends to be a more active community.

Knitting math is often hard to wrap my brain around, but here goes.
1. Do you know what a k2tog is? It is a decrease, and means you'd have less stitches.
2. It sometimes helps me to use a pencil and paper to keep track of what row I'm on, you can also write out how many stitches you have.
3. If you admire your work a lot, it will help you feel proud of yourself and find your mistakes.
4. It might be a bad pattern. There are lots of free patterns at ravelry.com- I think you have to register but it is TOTALLY worth it.

Are you maybe knitting into the side of a stitch occasionally and in advertently creating a new/additional one?

I just joined the knitting group mentioned above - thanks for the tip!
