Nicky Epstein Rose Trellis Purse
Has anyone completed the purse? I have had the pattern for several years but the decreases were dubious and the trellises didn't line up. Then it was re-written to be knitted in the round which seemed like it should have been done the first time. Got that pattern and still have problems with decreasing. I have torn it out so many times, my yarn is starting to actually "felt" on it's own because of all the friction. I had a thought that if it was knitted in the round, but starting at the bottom (instead of the top) using a provisional cast on so you could pick up those stitches and knit the bottom piece last. So if you knitted from bottom to top, you would make increases gradually until you had enough stitches to institute extra trellises instead of trying to decrease the amount of trellises. Anyone have ideas on what the pitfalls might be (especially if you have knitted this purse before). This project has been my heart's desire for so long but I just can't master it and make it look right. There has been a lot of conversation on Ravelry about the same decreasing problems.
