This was such a fun knit! It went a lot faster than I thought it would too. Don’t let my dates fool you, I had to set this aside to work on other Christmas things.. All in all, I loved working on it! I can’t wait to start Trillian for myself after Christmas.

I counted my stitches in the lace section after almost every right side row. Just to make sure. After having to tink back almost two whole rows a few times… It’s a lot faster to just count your stitches.

Also, note that in Edging Chart II, the stitch marker moves over one stitch!

I did 28 repeats before starting the edging. But I didn’t have enough to do the first 7 rows of the repeat, so I just tinked the last row I did. I ended up with a multiple of six, so it worked out to do it that way!
