Very cute. What in particular is giving you trouble with the tutu? Perhaps you can quote a few rows for us (not the whole pattern please)?

On row 1 of pattern says work through the center point between holes in lace at each end.

Row 3 of the tutu, reads k16 tlpy. After you do the turn do you complete the row

Row 8 again a lacing row, but this one reads, cut lace carefully. Thru centre of last hole, as before.

When the pattern of 12 rows is complete, you have to knit an extra row as the lace is done on wrong side if you don't. Totally confused.

I can understand your confusion. Is the tutu being added on to a lace top?
Yes, after you turn, complete the row. In general you complete the row unless told to do something else. Does the pattern define tlpy?

Are you using a self-ruffling yarn that has "holes" along the edge?

One of Ravely photos said it uses "knitting lace" which I think is the ribbon, ruffling yarn. If so, this video might help.

No the tutu is made of knit in lace. The bodice is knitted.

Terrycollingwood 04-14-2014 02:28 PM

No this is knit in lace. It is lace with holes through that you knit into from the wrong side.

Could you please link to an example of the type of yarn (lace with holes through) or post a photo? Or do you mean that you've knit lace and now you're knitting into it? This is all really confusing to me.
