Lacy Shawl-help with chart
I am making the "rambling Leaves Shawl" http://elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=151024
For my Dayghter's wedding. She is getting married 23 AUG in Pt.Pleasant Park Halifax. It's always windy out on the point and I want this shawl for her to wear. The " Leaves" remind us of wheat stalks so it ties back to the farm for her. I must be doing something wrong or have mis-read the chart. Here is my difficulty.
Rows 1 to 19 work up fine (after 30 tries) in row 19 there are 19 stitches in each repeat. BUT with row 21 there are only 18 stitches used to knit with!

Row 19 Repeat is
k12, make 1 between, yo, k in back, yo, k 2 tog, k2
Which makes 19 stitches

Row 21 repeat is
k14, yo, k in back, yo ,k1, yo, k2
which makes 21 stitches BUT ONLY REQUIRES 18 stitches to DO!!

Please have a look at the pattern and sell me what to do. Pattern is found at
http://elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=151024

Thanx
Carolyn

I misread your question, and gave a wrong answer, so nevermind. It's true that there are 19 stitches after row 19 (and 20) and 18 on row 21. Have you tried searching for errata?

Edit: After looking at it for some while, I would just leave away the "make 1" on row 19, so that you get 18 stitches to work with... I don't think it would change the pattern noticeably.

Hmm, yes you're right. On ravelry one person posted that the pdf chart is different from the one on the page and that she did a k2tog between the 2nd and 3rd YOs to make the stitch count come out right. And on rows 35 and 37 she put a k2tog between the 1st and 2nd YOs.

Those are not the only errors in the chart and apparently they're going to redo it, but haven't yet. You might try emailing elann and asking for the corrections.

Thanxs Bluegh2, apparently those are not the only errors in the chart. I've contacted elann.com for corrections. I'll keep your solution on file and use it if they doon't come through.

I think you posted the question on the elann message board? I see there's an answer and finally - a revised chart! Which does show a k2tog on row 21. Hopefully all the other errors have been corrected too and you have smooth knitting on the shawl.
