Beginner knitting lace pattern for first time help please
Hi all, I'm new to knitting and trying to teach myself from books and YouTube. I've recently bought some new patterns - Peter Pan 342 - and I'm trying design 5 which is the first time I've tried lace. The picture isn't too clear so I'm unsure what the actual lace pattern should look like and whether mine is right or wrong. Could anyone show me what the following pattern would create?

1st row - k1, *k3, yfwd, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yfwd, rept from * to last st. K1
2nd row - purl
3rd row - k1, *yfwd, sl 1, k2tog, psso, yfwd, k3, rept from * to last st, k1
4th row - purl
Repeat x 9

Welcome to Knitting Help!
The yarn forwards (or yarn overs) are going to give you eyelet holes in the knitting and increase the number of sts. The k2tog and psso will decrease stitches to balance out the increases and they may line up to give you a continuous lines up the knit fabric. It should be a very nice, lacy look. Don't worry about size of the eyelets. They'll even out with blocking or with washing.

That looks like an eyelet pattern, with two rows alternating. If that makes sense. If you can run down a picture of it online it would be helpful.

Here you can find a picture of what you're doing.

I'm getting a pattern like Charlotte's. It may be that you're just knitting a little looser and that's giving you the extra strand near the eyelets. Check the stitch count and make sure that you haven't gained any sts (perhaps not doing the pass sllipped stitch over?).
It looks pretty to me as you're doing it and if you're not gaining sts, then you should be fine. It is certainly a very nice pattern..

Salmonmac, I'm wondering if the difference in appearance near the YO is yarn weight or maybe needle size to get gauge. The baby sweater looks to be in sport or fingering instead of worsted??? Just thinking out loud...

I'm with you, it looks great as is!
