I'm making my daughter a shrug by knitting a rectangle and then seaming enough at each end to make a 3/4 length sleeve. I'm not using a pattern, just making it up as I go. At this point it looks like a scarf. Anyway, I've decided to make the sleeves lace using the following pattern of stitches:
k1, k2tog twice, (yo,k1) three times, yo, ssk twice, k1. The next row is purled, then you repeat the lace stitches.
I want the pattern to orient in the same direction on each sleeve when worn, ie the pattern points down to the elbow. One sleeve is done(at this point it doesn't matter if it's right or left), but I'm thinking I need to do the pattern in reverse on the other side. Am I thinking correctly?
I could just do it and frog it if it doens't work, but I was trying to save myself the frustration.
