I've knitted lace scarves and a stole or two... where there are only increases and decreases every other row. For my daughter's wedding I would like to knit a lace stole... and this pattern is lace knitting every row. At the very beginning, on row 2 I have a YO directly above another YO (on the chart). What do I do with the YO on my needle (from row 1)? I believe I'm missing something really obvious here... Thanks for the help!
Well - there is no text just chart. It's Myrtle Leaf Shawl from Victorian Lace Today. The first row (right side) has YO. When you turn and begin to knit row 2 (wrong side) there is another YO in the same position. The errata shows the chart on page 2.
Thanks for all the good ideas - errata was already printed out <g> I did talk to a friend of a friend who has knitted much longer than myself and she told me to purl the YO from row 1 and then YO for row 2. I will try that tonight when I CO for try #3.
I was going to say that at the back of this book is a lot of information on technique. I usually ignore all that stuff, but when I made something from VLT several years ago, I found it quite useful. It sounds like you have it figured out, though. Good luck - the patterns are challenging but really interesting.
"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.' "
I have this book too and looked at the pattern and technique info in back of book. Couldn't find any help there. I have a friend who made this shawl and I will ask her over the weekend but I think your solution may be the same thing she did. I knit a shawl from this book - can't remember the name right now - but I struggled a little with skimpy instructions.
