Having a tough time with this. It appears to be a simple repeating pattern on paper but I can’t seem to get the hang of it. I never seem to have the right number of stitches on the needle….don’t know if I“m dropping stitches, forgetting to yo or all of the above.
Jan 28 The final straw was doing the same damn row 5 times and having a different (read: incorrect) result each time. I know there were errors earlier so I made the decision to rip 5” and restart.
Jan 29 Sometimes extreme measures are necessary. It’s flawless and easy as I expected it to be this time….go figure
Feb19 I’m technically finished the pattern as I have the specified number of repeats. But this is a scarf so it’s really just a guideline. I think it’s too short so I’m going to keep going until I’m out of yarn.
Feb20 Did another six repeats of the pattern with a very small amount of yarn leftover. Washed with Eucalan and lightly blocked. There is a great deal of stretch in this fabric so pay attention when you block to ensure its the same width all the way down.
