I’m trying to knit the Juliet scarf from Knitting Little Luxuries (you can see the scarf here: [U][COLOR=#0000cc]flickr.com/photos/25580302@N08/2515104798[/COLOR][/U] and http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v69/jesdmill/new/hardingscarf2.jpg
I’ve knitted lace a few times before. I’m not an experienced lace knitter by any means, but I’ve done enough of the ssk, yo, k2tog, etc., to feel pretty comfortable tackling an easy project like this. However, after 6 or 7 attempts at knitting this pattern last night, I just couldn’t figure out why my yarn overs would turn into dangly peices of thread, as opposed to the lovely, decorative gaps seen in the pictures above. There aren’t little spaces in my knitting, but big ones with the yarn dangling in between. I must be doing the yarn over wrong–any tips? I think my tension is fine, so I’m not sure what’s making my scarf look raggedy instead of tasteful.
