I’m working on this lovely cardigan pattern from knitty.com (Girl Friday) and I’ve run into some trouble. While swatching I found that the 4"x4" stockingnette stitch turned out great. The 1x1 ribbing (over 4 inches) fit the gauge beautifully. But the Folding Diamond Lace pattern (charted above) didn’t look anything like the pictures.
This is what it is SUPPOSED to look like.
This is what mine looks like. Not the same. I’ve knit this swatch 3 times over different scales (2", 4", 7") and each swatch looks the same, but not like the pictures show.
The bottom half of each diamond matches, but the top doesn’t. And It seems that my purl stitches (on the right side of the work) end up in the wrong spot. I just don’t know what causes this. [B]Please help me![/B]
The yarn over (if I am doing it right) brings the yarn to the front (in knit stitch) of the work, then the next stitch is knitted.
[B]Since there is only one K2tog in each repetition of the pattern rows, the 2 yarn overs create 1 stitch. Isn’t this gonna creat problems in the cardigan’s pattern?[/B]
I’ll knit up a swatch in the pattern stitch in the same color I will be using for the cardigan and post it.
Help is appreciated!
