Just saw your reply... So I work row 5 fleurette until the "section" and then I follow the horseshoe pattern ... Is this correct?

Thanks so much!

Yes that's right. They don't want you to do all of row 5 of the horseshoe, only the center 7 sts (k1, yo, k1, S2KP, k1, yo, k1).

One more question...
Tis pattern is driving me crazy though I have to persevere because my sister picked it out... Assuming i can pose the question assuming knowledge of the chain below... Still working on the first row of the waist post decrease. I am left with 34 stitches...11 stitches....34 stitches. I understand what to do with the middle 11 stitches... But am confused bout the send 34 stitches... The fleurette pattern is multiples of 6 plus 5. K2 *k1, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo repeat from *to last 3 end k3.

Instructions: work row 34 stitches to the last 2 stitches k2....work the center and then work pattern to the end. Do I start from th e beginning k2* k1, yo etc...

I can email the pattern if helpful...

Thank you from someone desperately frustrated. :-)

I know how frustrating this can be and I think we've all been in your place. I certainly have
Yes, work the fleurette pattern from the beginning
K2 *k1, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo repeat from * here end k2
but with the change in italics. You'll have the 6 stitch repeat 5 times (30sts) plus the k2 to begin the row and the k2 to end this section (total 34sts). Then deal with the middle 11 sts as suggested in the previous post (#9) and work the final 34sts as
K2 *k1, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo repeat from * here end k2

Thank you....thank you!!

The next decrease in fleurette is k4, *yo, k3. Repeat. The first 34 work we'll... Then I do the the 9 in horseshoe as described. Now I have the 34 stitches...do I star with the yo, k1 ending with k4 or do I start from the beginning k4, yo, k3

Hoping this will be the last time I bother you!! Many thank so much!!!

It looks to me like it should be
k4, *yo, k3. Repeat from * (without the final k1)
The first 34 work that way and so do the last 34sts, both starting out with the k4.
You can check and make sure that the fleurette pattern is forming correctlym just to be sure.
It's no bother at all. I'm excited to see this gorgeous (but complicated) pattern coming along and look forward to seeing the finished work of art.

I may be over thinking this but on the second group of 34 stitches, why wouldnt i just continue the pattern from the * vs. the first couple stitches to the left of * ( k2, k2tog) ... If I did this I would be repeating the multiples of 6 leaving 2 stitches at the end.... If I start out as I was beginning the row k2, k2tog, * yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo , s2kp, to last 9 stitches... Leaves me with 1 at the end?

If the decrease wasn't in the middle I would be just repeating the *

Promise this is my last question of the evening. Really really appreciate this. Vogue patterns are tough to read and your assistance is invaluable!!!!

So this is now row 9 of the fleurette? In order for the fleurette to line up correctly, all the rows need to start at the same place. The way to check this is that the fleurettes do line up. If they're off a stitch, then the beginning of the sets of 34sts was incorrect. Since the pattern is for 6 + 5 and you have a multiple of 6 + 4, you have to leave off a stitch at the beginning or at the end. The pattern wants the stitch left off at the end. That's why the directions say "...ending k2" for row 5, size small (Waist shaping, line 6).
The 34st pattern is:
Row 5 k2 *k1, yo, ssk,k1,k2tog, yo rep from *to the last 2sts ending k2 (not k3).
Row 7 k4, *yo, k3. Repeat from * (without the final k1)
Row 9 k2, k2tog, *yo, ssk,k1, k2tog, yo, S2KP, rep from * to last 8 sts, end, yo, ssk, k1, k2tog, yo, ssk, k1 (instead of k2).

Understood... I have stitches on needle numbering 34...11/9/7/5/....34

For the second 34 stitches, Do I follow the fleurette pattern from the very beginning ie...multiples of 6+4... Just confirming this

I am sorry but I've started this sweater 5 times and I am trying to avoid a sixth - haha ughhh

Thanks!!!

Yes, that's right. I think that once you get past this waist shaping the rest will be easier.
