I started knitting a beautiful lacy shawl but I’m not sure how to proceed. The chart for the lace has 32 rows, but the directions don’t tell where to use which row. It starts with row 1 - so do I just go up the line?

# Lace pattern question

Are there numbers next to the rows? If the numbers go like this 1,3,5,7,…(or 2,4,6,8,…) then there is only every second row charted. If so, then you purl the other rows, except maybe the edge, which should be specified (i.e. keep a border of 3 stitches. then you knit every 3 stitches and 3 last stitches on every row)

Does that make sense? Or even help?

the numbers go from 1 to 32. The lace is just 19 stiches wide and repeated 3 times across each row. Stst in between and garter stitch on the edges.

Then you knit every row of the chart. I’m not sure I see what your problem is…
