Hi All - I have tried 3 days in a row to figure out how to send a thread -hope this one works!
Good morning - I am beside myself trying to figure out this new pattern. I have knitted several intermediate afghans so I am not new to knitting but this one has got me. It is called Eyelet Lace Afghan by Shari Haux. The basic first eight rows standard knit for edging. Finally could start the pattern, the first row got me!! It says “rep from * to last 11 sts” BUT it doesn’t make sense. if you need 6 stitches for the border (you will continue that throughout the blanked on both edges, that leaves 5 stitches BUT the instructions are yo (that is 1 stitch), SSK (that is 2 stitches),k1 ( 1 stitch), k2tog (2 stitches), yo (1 stitch). that is a total of 7 stitches plus 6 for edging is 13 stitches. It is not mathematically possible! And, to boot - row 3 says rep to last 11 st. but it requires 14 stitches if you follow the pattern. I have never been so unable to figure out a pattern and hope someone can give me advice. Thank you kindly
