Hello everyone, thanks for the replies... such kindred spirits here.

Thanks Rebecca, like you, i'm just a beginner with lace (as well as knitting). You're right, experienced lace knitters came to the rescue.

MER & Julie, thanks to both of you too.

Julie, what you suggested about the 2 knit sts were definitely on the mark!

Here's what a few pattern repeats look like for the Doubled Dayflower Lace Version..


* Cast on 42
* Purl Row 1 (WS) & all wrong side rows except 5 & 13, but remember to knit the first & last 3 border sts.

- Row 1: k3, purl 36, k3. [42 sts]
- Row 2: k5, yo, k2tog, yo, k2tog (3x), k2, yo, k3, yo, ssk, yo, k2, * THIS IS WHERE JULIE SAID TO SKIP K2*, yo, k2tog, yo, k2tog (3x), k2, yo, k3, yo, ssk, yo, k5. [42 sts]
- Row 4: k5, yo, k2tog, k3tog (2x), yo, k1, yo, k2, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, k2, yo, k2tog, k3tog (2x) yo, k1, yo, k2, ssk, yo, ssk, yo, k5. [38 sts]
- Row 5: purl 14, p2tog, purl 13, p2tog, purl 7. [36 sts]
- Row 6: k5, yo, k3tog, yo, k3, yo, k2, [ssk & yo] 2x, k2, yo, k3tog, yo, k3, yo, k2, [ssk & yo] 2x, k5. [38 sts]
- Row 8: k5, yo, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, [k2 & ssk & yo] 2x, ssk, yo, k2, yo, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, [k2 & ssk & yo] 2x, ssk, yo, k5. [42 sts]
- Row 10: k5, yo, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, k2, ssk (3x), yo, ssk, yo, k2, yo, k2tog, yo, k3, yo, k2, ssk (3x), yo, ssk, yo, k5. [42 sts]
- Row 12: k5, [yo & k2tog] 2x, k2, yo, k1, yo, s1k2tog psso (2x), ssk, yo, k2, [yo & k2tog] 2x, k2, yo, k1, yo, s1k2tog psso (2x), ssk, yo, k5. [38 sts]
- Row 13: purl 7, p2tog tbl, purl 13, p2tog tbl, purl 14. [36 sts]
- Row 14: k5, [yo & k2tog] 2x, k2, yo, k3, yo, s1k2tog psso, yo, k2, [yo & k2tog] 2x, k2, yo, k3, yo, s1k2tog psso, yo, k5. [38 sts]
- Row 16: k5, [yo & k2tog] 2x, k2, yo, k2tog, k2, yo, k1, yo, ssk, yo, k2, [yo & k2tog] 2x, k2, yo, k2tog, k2, yo, k1, yo, ssk, yo, k5. [42 sts]

I think i did this correctly, but i'm not 100% sure. I may have messed up rows 5 & 13.
