yarnovers galore
after a 2nd week of major family medical issues, my family whiplashed into 3 yo birthday mode, and is about to whiplash back into the medical stuff... so i'm about out of brain juice.

what are the rules/guidelines/issues/etc involved with stacking yarnovers... as in, if they end up on top of each other on subsequent rounds of a circular project, how does that work, not work, need to be addressed, etc.

Would you drop the yarn over on the following row or work it as a stitch and place the yarn over on the next row before or after it? If you drop it, you'll get a ladder or likely, just a loose stitch. Usually you see yarn over offset by a stitch or more on the next row or the next alternate row.
I haven't seen rules about stacking yarn overs but this sounds like something that would be easiest to work out on a swatch.

no dropping them, they'd all be worked. the pattern i'm creating and trying to suss out is a 150-stitch (may go up to 225, depending on yarn and gauge), 10-round repeat with a mix of yarnovers, knits, k2togs, purls and p2togs. each round is offset by one grouping from the previous, to create a free-form look, while still following a pattern. because the yarnovers happen regularly in the pattern, it's entirely likely they would stack on top of each other from round to round. if all that happens is that they stretch out in a lace effect, that's fine. but if there's an issue as far as them not interlocking correctly, that's something i'd need to address. i have the first draft of the pattern written out, but you're right, i may just have to put it on hold until i can swatch it.

Sounds intriguing. Even two or three repeats may be enough to help you understand what will happen with the pattern.
Sorry to hear about the medical problems, X. Sometimes a birthday celebration is a welcome change. Hope all goes well.
