This project started just lovely and got my full attention at the beginning. The yarn is perfect for the cause: very light, very soft and very drapey. I was in love.

But at the 2nd Change of sequence something weird happended to my stich count:
Ribbed back almost all of part 2 (eyelet 3+4) because I did not like the transition between part 1 and 2.
2 eyelets on both sides are stacked upon each other. It is very regular looking but not matching the overall pattern. I did not find a good looking way around it, so I did the very same thing again. Will make a picture soon for better explanation.

After writing all this I found out many are having problems. Her a very helpful ravelers page: Zarah Marias Campside. Thank you so much!

In the end (after ribbing back the 4th time) I found a solution - I did 2 more rows of plain garter st in between the sequences. Now its looking good.

It took me so long to finish my project, because I lost interest in it. With all the ribbing back - no wonder why….

I like the result, but was not worth all the effort I put in this.
From a well known designer I expected a little more attention to detail. Fair enough - the pattern is for free.
