Hello! I am knitting the absolutely lovely Kilcar from Debbie Bliss’ Donegal Tweed pattern book, and am having a horrible time getting the front sections correct, so here I am to seek ideas!
A little info: There’s a repeating pattern of 10 rows, with Pattern A for the smaller size and Pattern B for the larger size. Now the trouble – after you knit two rows, the info for the left front says to then:
“Beg as pattern A for first size or as pattern B for 2nd size and ending as pattern B for both sizes, work 80 rows.”
OK. What does this mean?? Does this mean do the first 70 rows as pattern A, and the last 10 as pattern B? Or does it mean do the first section of stitches in pattern A, and then finish each ROW in pattern B? it is utterly confusing. I have tried about every combination i can think of, and I simply cannot make it work – I knitted 40 rows last night and it looked awful! If anyone can give any insight or suggestions, I would be very grateful. I have tried contacting Debbie Bliss directly as nothing is listed on their Web site’s pattern correction page, but they do not list an e-mail contact address, if you can imagine that!
PS if it would be helpful to know the pattern repeats, please PM me – I just didn’t want to post half the pattern for all to see!
