The new techniques that I would be learning would be lace work, cable stitch, casting on in the middle of the work, picking up stitches and binding off in purl stitch. WHEW!!! Wow, that is a lot when I write it out!!! Thank goodness for YouTube videos!!!
I posted that I was not convinced that the pattern emerging looked right, but that I was not giving in and frogging it. That I was going to believe and follow the pattern.
I looked and looked at my emerging work. I looked and looked at the pattern picture. Back and forth. Back and forth.
|It is upside down!!!! Turn it around and I am in a happy place.|
Then tonight, I realize that it cannot be that way as this is a TOP DOWN pattern. Stress.
|It has to be this way.....see the markers where I would slip the cap sleeves off....|
Just when I thought I was working this right. I have only 5 more rows until I slip the sleeve stitches onto waste yarn. Then, perhaps, I shall see this more clearly.
"In your pattern, believe, my young padawan." Yoda, as a knitting instructor, says in my head.
"Yes, Master Yoda."
