It's not working out though--can anyone help?

Sometimes they're part of the pattern and you need them. Can you write out a couple rows of the pattern? Maybe we can help you figure out how to convert it. __________________ sue- knitting heretic

I eliminated the K2 at the beginning of the YO row b/c I don't want to end up with this huge seam of stockinetter running thru the tube, but the eyelets aren't lining up correctly. The eyelets should be in rows one under the other, but they aren't doing that--help!

Do all pattern rows (row 3 here) look the same? Or are the eyelets alternating? __________________ Jan When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it. NEW!

Thanks for trying to help--I appreciate it.

Logically, dropping the K2 at the beginning of row 3 should line up the YOs...however in my world logic sometimes doesn't work in knitting. Are you marking the beginning of each round, so that the YO is the first stitch in the round? Then they should line up..... should being the opperative word. __________________ LizzieK8 (Ravelry Handle) http://lizzysends.blogspot.com/

Earlier today I went back to it and looked really hard at it. I had already done three repeats of this pattern so I knew that the math was correct, and I had tinked back almost a whole row and not seen any mistakes....BUT, I remember losing my stitch marker on the previous round and sure enough when I looked at my tail, I discovered I had placed it just one stitch off and thus, the problem. I knitted about 5 inches after that--yeah! There is aways a reason in knitting--I guess it's just having the patience to try to figure it out. Thanks again!
