increase and decrease in eyelet pattern
Hi. I wonder if anyone on the forum could help please? I making Sirdar leaflet 1689 child's lacy bolero. The eyelet design is repeated every eight rows and is k2 tog yo k1 thus a pattern repeat of three stitches. If I get to the end of of row and due to increasing am left with only three stitches should I still make an eyelet right on the end or should I just knit these stitches. Also need to pick up stitches around the bolero for a ribbed eding should I pick up the two strands at the edge or try and find a whole stitch to go into? Many thanks for anyone's help :thinking:

I'd probably knit the last three stitches so not to end with the eyelet. As you increase, work in stockinette stitch unless you have a balanced increase and decrease.

I think it's ok if you pick up in the eyelet--I think it's a matter of seeing if you like it.

Thanks Ingrid. Call me dim, but can you explain what you mean by a balanced increase and decrease? :thinking:

I just mean to not to a yo unless you have a k2tog to compensate for it, and vice versa. You need them to be 'balanced' or you'll increase or decrease rather than have one cancel out the other. Clearer?
