I’m making the Shaped Lace Tee by Joan McGowan-Michael and I’m having some serious problems with the first lace pattern!
Every time I get done with one of the lace rows I’ve ended up with an extra stitch. I’ve gone back through and made sure I followed the pattern properly and I have. I’ve ripped out and started over and still have the same problem.
CO 85 stitches
(the lace is Vine Lace from A treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker)
Rows 1 and 3 (ws): purl
Row 2: K3, *yo, k2, ssk, k2tog, k2, yo, k1; repeat from *, end k1.
Row 4: k2, *yo, k2, ssk, k2tog, k2, yo, k1; repeat from *, end k2
So if I’m reading this right I’m decreasing the same amount I’m increasing/yoing and so should be ending with 85 stitches. I shouldn’t be getting an extra stitch each row at all, or one less either.
