Knitting in the round hasn't been too bad, so far, but I've only gotten to the first charted row (which I have to unknit entirely because I somehow got off 2 stitches).
Here have been my challenges:
Doing the math and remembering that the instructions need to be repeated twice. This is rather obvious, but a little challenging since the ribbing isn't purely K2P2. I added a stitch marker to differentiate the front & back.
Remembering to only look at the chart every other row! I really struggled with this while swatching. I'm tempted to rewrite the chart to include the rows stitched in pattern because I keep forgetting.
I had to take out my first charted row because I forgot that it has to be a 360 degree wrap for the YO, P2tog - but that would happen anyway even if it weren't in the round. I am using stitch markers around the patterned areas to hopefully keep me on track, but since I haven't gotten past the first row yet, I don't know how much it will help. :rollseyes:
HTH, Katy. Good luck!! Can't wait to see everyone's finished Callas.
