Help w/ CeCe sweater from Chicknits
Hi All!!! I sure hope someday I can help answe questions instead of always being the one to ask them!! This is my first Adv. Beginner project, and I am already lost. I am only to the second part where I start to establish the lace pattern. I am ready to start Row 2, I think I can handle that row too, but at the bottom, this is wehat has totally thrown me for a loop:
Continue in patterns as established to underarm, using the lace chart starting with row 3 for lace sections and working others as they appear, AND AT THE SAME TIME start side shaping on row 8 of lace pattern as follows:
Next Row-INC Row(RS): *Work as established to 1 st before marker, M1, k1, SM' k1, M1, repeat from * once, work to end of row.

You place markers in row 2. Do I just work everything until I hit the underarm, and then start worrying about the inc??

Please help, thank you!!
Lori

It sounds like you'll work the lace pattern in between the two markers. When you get to the 8th row in the lace pattern, that's when you'll start your increases. HTH

Nope- you do the increase while you're knitting row 8 of the lace pattern.

Since it's top-down, you need to do your raglan increases when at the beginning.

I tried to do that first second row, and I came out with too few stitches. I am going to start over once more, and if I can't get it, I am throwing in the towel on this one.

Ingrid, this pattern starts out at the bottom of the sweater.

Oops! I just assumed that since you were increasing, you were working the raglan.

It does say to work in established pattern to underarm, so I think you need to work even until you get the body the length you want, and then, when you are on row 8 of the lace pattern up there, you start your raglan increases.

I counted out all of my stitches from the pattern, and wrote that 2nd row down. I have 179 sts., and 167 on my needle, which is what I am supposed to have. This sweater is so beautiful, and I have the perfect yarn, I am just so frustrated!! I may have to go to my LYS tomorrow and they have an open class on Thurs., and have them help me. I really want to make this sweater, and I can do it, I just need to figure it out. I have to run now, but maybe later, if I print out this second row, Ingrid, can you take a look at it??

I'd be happy to look at it. It is possible that all the rows aren't supposed to end up with the same number of stitches--many lace patterns do this.

See how many stitches you have to use in row 2 to get to row 3. If it's 167 going up to 179, you're good.

This is exactly as it is written in the instructions....
Row 2 (RS): SLP, k1, p1, k1, p1; k3(0,1,3,0,1); work 3(4,4,4,5,5) repeats of Row 2 of Lace Pattern; k5(1,3,3,1,1); PM; k3(1,3,1,3,1); work 8 (9, 9, 10, 10, 11) repeats of Row 2 lace pattern; k3, (1, 3, 1, 3, 1) PM; k5(1,3,3,1,1); work 3(4,4,4,5,5) repeats of row 2 lace pattern; k3(0,1,3,0,1); p1, k1, p1, k2.

This is how I have it written down:
slp, k1, p1, k1, p1.
k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2(4 times)
k5, PM, k3
k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2(9 times)
k3, PM, k5
k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2(4 times)
p1, k1, p1, k2.

Lace Pattern:
Row 2: *K@, K2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2; repeat from *
All odd rows are purl rows.

Thanks Ingrid, and I hope you can decipher this!!!
