Oh, wow! That worked out so well. Lovely pattern and color.

Thank you

Believe on! That’s very, very nice. I like your choice of color too. You did indeed do a good job!

Thanks

New project - Blue Tide Lacy Throw
Instructions: Lace Panel (worked over 9 sts)
1st Row: (RS) K1. yo. K1. K2tog. P1. S11.K1. paso K1. yo. K1
Lost: please

This row takes 9sts to work and leaves you with 9sts. The 2 yarn overs increase 2 sts and the 2 decreases (k2tog and sl one, k1, psso) balance them out.
K1, yo, k1 (3sts)
k2tog, p1, skp (3sts)
k1, yo, k1 (3sts)

The pattern uses a ssk for the left leaning dec but you can certainly substitute skp.

Confusion: Are @Nicky52 and @Nicky1952 different users? Or the same person?

Same person. Two accounts as I did not think my first sign up had worked.

Every time I think I have this pattern figured out the next time I look at it I find myself confused.
I made some notes along the way.

I have completed the first seven rows add have 189 sts.
My confusion starts after that point in reading the pattern. :woman_shrugging:

Keeping good notes is a very helpful idea.
With this pattern, it may also help to count the number of increases (yo) and decreases (k2tog or skpsso) in a row. In each case a decrease is balanced by an increase to the stitch number stays the same.

Have you placed markers on either side of the lace panels in the blanket? That’ll make it easier to go back and count sts in the lace panels and the sts between lace panels to make sure the stitch number doesn’t change. Do this every row for awhile until you’re sure of the stitch count.

The pattern I see online is to CO purlwise. (Three garter stitch ‘ridges’…then bind off purlwise.).

Be safe.

I can see the photo that you posted. Where exactly do you think you are having a problem? Is it just a matter of counting sts after every row?

I honestly do not know we’re to begin after the seventh row.

You should have 199sts to begin the main body of the pattern.

For the first row of the main body, follow the directions in the row (P2) and when you come to the “Lace Panel”, refer to the directions under Lace Panel. When you do that,
1st row: (RS). *P2. Work 1st row Lace Panel.
(P2. K2tog. yo. P2. yo. ssk.) twice. P2. K2tog. yo. Rep from * to last 13 sts. P2.
Work 1st row Lace Panel. P2.

becomes
1st row: (RS). *P2. K1. yo. K1. K2tog. P1. ssk. K1.yo. K1.
(P2. K2tog. yo. P2. yo. ssk.) twice. P2. K2tog. yo. Rep from * to last 13 sts. P2.
K1. yo. K1. K2tog. P1. ssk. K1.yo. K1. P2.

Keep doing that for the following rows. For the second row, work the directions as given (K2) and where it says “work 2nd row Lace Panel” substitute row 2 under the Lace Panel instructions. For the third row, work the directions substituting the 3rd row of the Lace Panel where it’s indicated.
