Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Ribbed Lace Bolero {Yarn Along}

Ribbed Lace Bolero {Yarn Along}

I finished knitting my sister's hat, but now I need to sew in the ends and then block it around a plate so that I can make it a little more slouchy.  And I'm dragging my feet to do this.  Why?  This is my least favorite part when knitting a project.  Once I cast off, I would love to be finished, but that's not the case.

Now, I'm knitting the Ribbed Lace Bolero.  I'm only on the ribbing. Though I must admit to being confused by this:
row 2: p1 (p1, p1 into first yo, p1 into the back of the second yo, p1) repeat lace pattern until 1 stitch left, p1
Any help would be appreciated.  Though, I realize I'm probably over thinking.

I finished listening to Prisoner of Birth and highly recommend it, it's a modern day version of The Count of Monte Cristo.  Now, I want to reread The Count of Monte Cristo.

What are you reading or knitting?

  2. I'm with you on being done with a project. :) Wish I could help you with the pattern confusion you're having, but I just don't get it without knowing what the row before looks like. Happy knitting!

  3. I wish I could help you with your pattern but I find I need to start over a few times before I catch on to the pattern.

    By the way, I've learned something about blocking, just to do it. Then you can be done and the project seems to look so much better, particularly big items like sweaters and blankets.

  4. I'm going to attempt to help you with the pattern, though I'm not sure what the quetion is.

    When you get to the second row:

    1.) Purl the first stitch.
    2.) **Next stitch will be the ssk from the previous row. Purl that stitch.
    3.) Next stitch will be the first of two yarn overs. Purl that stitch like normal.
    4.) Next stitch will be the second of the two yarn overs. Purl that stitch through the back loop. Are you unsure about purling into the back of the second yarnover? If so, I think this MAY help: http://ajoyfulhappylife.blogspot.com/2008/05/how-to-purl-into-back-of-second-yo.html
    5.) Next stitch will be the k2tog from the previous row. Purl that stitch like normal.

    Repeat from ** until the last stitch. Purl that last stitch like normal.

    Hope this helps! :-)
