p3tog
Errr...
p3tog but do not remove sts yet, yo wrapping yarn completely around needles, then p3tog again into the same 3 sts.
AND, the rows are 361 sts long.
This isn't my Faaaavorite thing ever. lol

haha It's the Cat's Cradle Long Ways Scarf by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer.
The reason you cast on sooo many is because you cast on the entire length of the whole lace scarf. So there aren't a ton of rows, but each row takes forever.
lol Yeah, not digging all this p3tog. But it's my first lace project and I basically like it. Lace is so pretty and exciting :D

Dumb question, but how on earth do you ever get the yarn off the needles with all the "wrap around" yarn to drag through the p3? I don't knit really tightly, and there are times the k2tog or p2tog are tricky for me to get the yarn pulled through without the "2tog" slipping off the needle........

Whoever designed that pattern must be a very loose knitter.

I'm a pretty tight knitter, and it's EXTREMELY hard for the p3tog to go through the first time. But when you wrap the yarn around, you wrap it around the needles, not those stitches.
So usually once I've gotten the needle through and pulled back out from the first p3tog, the second one isn't hard.

yowza, that sounds like Star Stitch. I had a hard time with that. I'm a fairly tight knitter too, FWIW. sorry, no real good pointers or advice from me - I struggled.
but now that I think about it... I think inserting the right needle at a weird (well, weird for me anyways) angle helped a lot. like, I think I practically had the right needle parallel and "lying down" to the left one when inserting.

If you don't have Knitpicks needles it might be worth seeing whether you can borrow them from a friend... maybe two circulars with smaller tips on one end?
