which is indeed lovely. It should work like any pattern, as you say, when you have enough sts, you would start another trellis. There are often patterns like this that use different pattern sts rather than different colors and that's the way they work. The important thing is to watch the trellis pattern and make sure you keep it aligned. (The same holds if you knit from the top down: trellises disappear but you keep an eye on the pattern as established.) Why not try it out on some scrap yarn, saving your good yarn until you're confident about the pattern? For myself, I would graph out the pattern at the increases to see how to work them in.
Thanks for the response. Yes graphing it might be best before I try to start it again. I always get to the same spot and run into problems. But I think from reading your response, you agree that increasing would be a lot better than decreasing. Charting would be a good idea. I didn't think of that so I will try that first. I have the pattern memorized now because I've knitted and frogged it so many times. If you look on Ravelry, you will see that there are a lot of grumbling about the same problem I'm having. Even the people doing the newer version in the round say that the trellises don't line up "but that's okay" to quote them. Well, that's NOT okay with me. If I can't do it right, then I'd rather not do it at all. Thanks again.
