I’ve never done lace before and I’m struggling, and wondering if someone can help. It says to CO 43 stitches. But when I do that, I end up two stitches short. The chart says there are 45 stitches in the first row, which makes me wonder if there’s a typo. But then, when I CO 45 stitches, work the first row, and then work the second row, I end up with several extra stitches. So I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. I dug up a write-up of the chart from Ravelry, thinking that was my problem, but the same thing happened. (it’s here: http://nelkindesigns.com/index.cfm/page/Tutorials/Ent_written.htm)
Any ideas? I’ve started over at least 4-5 times and am close to giving up, although I don’t want to. I just keep making the same mistakes over and over again, apparently.
