Just before I went to visit my sister for Labor Day I finished the first repeat of chart B on the Percy Shawl. Did I ever complain about that boring rest row in lace patterns? That was dumb. I would like them back please. I have never made so many mistakes and as I have on this chart B.
About half way through I did finally find that cadence I love so much with lace knitting but it was a painful half. Even finding a good cadence I still keep making more mistakes than I’m used to. I’m really missing that rest row. Did you know there’s different terminology for if a lace pattern has rest rows or not?
- Knitted lace = patterned rows on both the right and wrong side of the pattern
- Lace knitting = patterned rows on the right side and rest rows on the wrong side
That means I’m doing both knitted lace and lace knitting for this pattern? Do I get extra brownie points?
