Satin is similar to Caron Simply Soft, you may find a pattern you like at their site. But I haven't had a problem following their patterns, they're actually pretty easy. If you would tell us the name of it, it may be on their site and we can help you out with it.

Bernat is a canadian company BTW, so their patterns are written in British knitting terms, maybe that's what's throwing you off? They also use a period instead of a comma between sts, which can make it harder to follow. So a row goes like this - K2. *yo. K2. yo. Sl1. K2tog. psso. yo. K3. yo. Sl1. K2tog. psso. yo. K2. yo.*

If this is your firt time knitting a lace pattern, you might be confused by the YOs. They're just wrapping a stitch around the needle, then do the next st given in the pattern, and it's also easy to forget one, or do too many or do the same with the decs.

The lace panel is 9 sts, so for row 1 - *P2. Work 1st row Lace Panel. (P2. K2tog. yo. P2. yo. Sl1. K1. psso) twice. P2. K2tog. yo. Rep from * to last 13 sts. P2. Work 1st row Lace Panel. P2.

you would p2, the the repeat begins - work 9 sts of the lace pattern, p2, k2tog, yo, p2, yo, skp, p2, k2tog, yo, p2 yo skp, p2 k2tog yo. Then do that all from the 9 sts of the lace panel again and again until you have 13 sts left. Then p2, the lace panel once more, and end with p2.

It may help to use stitch markers to mark off the 9st repeats for the lace pattern. That way you can count sts between the markers, see where you may have made a mistake in the repeat panel, and where you need to make a corrections. See for example, the after-thought yarn over under the Free Videos tab at the top of the page, Increases.

@Suzeeq -
Bernat is a Canadian company, but most of of their patterns are written using both USA and Canadian terms.

@ Alayna -
The pattern is a relatively easy pattern

PS - British terms are more commonly called canadian terns.

I used this yarn to knit a basket weave baby blanket or one of my daughter's co-workers who is expecting a child this fall. I didn't like it because it snagged on my rings, or any rough spot on the needles. I didn't buy all of the yarn for the blanket, my daughter did but I had to buy another two because what she bought was not going to be enough.
