So I've just begun knitting a couple weeks ago and after doig some simple things I wanted to try my first attempt at lace. I purchased a pattern on etsy and am a bit confused on how to execute.
I cast on my 88 stitches and did k1,p1 for several rounds and am ready for the lace work to start.
I'm confused about the "No Stitch" boxes. Would I just pretend they aren't there and make the first 11 stitches in the round the purl ones indicated on the chart and continue the round by making the 12th stitch that k2tog in the 2nd row and just keep going around and around?
I apologize if this is a stupid question, I'm a total newb still! :/
