I'm trying a lace knitting pattern, and, once I get to the second repeat, the "leaf" part of the repeat (about row 7)begins to pucker. I've tried changing yarns, knitting looser, knitting tighter ... not sure what to try next. The pattern I'm using is Myrtle Leaf Shawl on page 142 of Victorian Lace Today. The only thing I can possibly think to change is to remove the little plastic markers between repeats. That's the only thing I haven't tried yet, but I wonder if it's more basic: Are my YOs and/or decreases not quite right? Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.
