I need some advice on this one. I am starting (I’ve started it a couple of times, actually) the high neck lace top from Vogue Knitting Holiday 2005 shown on page 92. The first five rows are driving me nuts because I am not doing it right. Here are the instructions:
Cast on 104 sts.
Row 1 (RS) P2, *yo to M1, p4tog; rep from *, end p2.
Here is where I think the problems starts:
Row 2 K2, *k1, (k1,p1,p1) into “made” st of previous row; rep from *, end k2.
Row 3 Knit.
Row 4 Purl.
Eyelet row 5 (RS) [K2, yo, k2tog] 26 times.
So Row 1 is tough because of the purl 4 tog, but I get through it without a problem. But Row 2 looks weird. The (k1, p1, p1) into the “made” stitch looks weird, especially the two purl stitches done one after the other in the same stitch. And when I turn and do row 3, trying to knit each stitch of the (k1, p1, p1) gets messed up. I think I drop stitches while I am doing the p1, p1 but I am not sure and the pattern doesn’t tell you the number of stitches until after you finish the 5th row. What do I do? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?
Thanks for any advice.
