Eyelet pattern with increases
I'm making the Ballet Legwarmers and Sweater set from Lion Brand.

I'm not sure what I'm missing here. The instructions state:

Next Row K 2, work Eyelet Pattern (listed below) across 22 sts, k 2.

Continue in this manner, keeping first 2 and last 2 sts in size 4 only in st st (k on RS, p on WS); AT SAME TIME, inc 1 st at beg and end of rnd every 3 inches 3 times 32 sts.

Eyelet Pattern worked back and forth on straight needles (multiple of 8 sts + 6)
Row 1 (RS) Knit.
Rows 2, 4 and 6 Purl.
Row 3 *K 6, yo, k2tog, repeat from * across, end k 6.
Row 5 Knit.
Row 7 K 2, *yo, k2tog, k 6, repeat from * across, end k 4.
Row 8 Purl.
Repeat Rows 1-8 for Eyelet Pattern.

My problem, is what do I do with those extra sts? I can't end with k6 (and k2 for border) with 2 extra sts, so do I incorporate them into the border sts?

I felt like working flat, but I think I'll go in the round instead. Although even then, what do I do with those extra sts?

I *think* you would just knit them as part of the border until you have added enough of them to have an extra eyelet. Maybe someone else has a better idea?

Ugh, I'm having another problem with this pattern. Now it's the sweater part. I'll copy the Eyelet Pattern here

Quote:
Eyelet Pattern worked back and forth on straight needles (multiple of 8 sts + 6)
Row 1 (RS) Knit.
Rows 2, 4 and 6 Purl.
Row 3 *K 6, yo, k2tog, repeat from * across, end k 6.
Row 5 Knit.
Row 7 K 2, *yo, k2tog, k 6, repeat from * across, end k 4.
Row 8 Purl.
Repeat Rows 1-8 for Eyelet Pattern
I have 42 sts for the size 6 pattern. In my instructions, it says:

Next row: k2, eyelet pattern across 38 sts, k2
Continue eyelet pattern, keeping first 2 and last 2 sts in St st for 14 inches.

Okay, I'm not sure about how to end the row. It doesn't seem right, when compared to how it worked with the legwarmers. To make it work, I would have to do a repeat of yo, k2tog, k6, then immediately do the k4, and then the k2 for the edge sts. Does that seem right? The way that seems right to me would be to yo, k2tog, end with the k4, and then the k2.

I'm probably confusing myself, but it just seems strange the way it works out.

I think that the edge sts would be part of the k6 on both ends of row 3, and would part of the k4 at the end of row 5. Have you worked those rows yet? You should be able to see how it works when you get there. I think the reminder to keep 2 sts on each edge in St st is to remember to purl them on the WS rows as well.

I made a mistake in my question above. I was asking about Row 7, and just put the "Next Row" instruction to show they specified adding 2 sts at beginning and end. I just forgot to put Row 7 to say where I was having trouble.

Row 3 works out with the extra 2 sts on each end. I finish the last k6, yo, k2tog repeat, then have enough to end with k6 and then 2 edge sts. If I incorporate the 2 first and last sts into the k6, then I would have 2 sts left over. (2 edge + (8 x 4 repeats=32) + end 6 + 2 edge = 42 sts)

When I was doing the legwarmer pattern, my row 7 would work out, since I ended even (yo, k2tog, k4 then 2 edge sts) when starting with 2 edge sts at the beginning.

I'm sorry, I meant row 7 in my reply above, not row 5. So apply what I wrote to row 7 - the edge sts would be part of the k4 at the end of the row. In the pattern repeat
*yo, k2tog, k 6, repeat from * across, end k 4."
on the last repeat you would end with k4 instead of k6 and the 2 edge sts would be part of the k4.

If I do it that way, (including the 2 edge sts in the sts already there) I end up with 2 extra sts. Row comes to 40 sts, and I have 42 sts, which is correct.

Start with 42 sts. The row is k2, *yo, k2tog, k6, repeat from * across, end k4. That means k2 (2) + yo, k2tog, k6 , repeats 4 times (8x4=32), then yo, k2tog, k4 (6) = 40.

So, should I add 2 edge sts at the beginning and not the end? Or not add them at the beginning and add them at the end?

You know, I'm not really sure. And Lion is notoriously bad for writing patterns; you should email them and ask for clarification.

I think I will. Actually, since the other 2 sizes don't add edge sts (just remembered that!) I'll go see how those add up and maybe that will help me figure it out! If not, I'll email them.
