Cannot figure out gull lace stitch on the FLS
Am I the only one in the universe that cannot figure out the gull lace pattern on the February Lady Sweater ? Here is the the link, http://www.flintknits.com/patterns/ladysweater.pdf

I knit it exactly as written, ie K1, K2tog, yo, K1, Yo, ssk, K1. then purl the next row. etc. It does not look right. If I always end with K1 and then start with a K1 and k2tog. it does not look right.

I have been trying to swatch it for three weeks. I have given myself a break to figure it out and I still cant get it.

HELP!!!
PLEASE?????

That's correct, it's a 7 st repeat, 2 repeats would look like this - k, k2T, O, k, O, ssk, k, k, k2T, O, K, O, k, so yes you have 2 k sts together. A YO is just wrapping the yarn around your needle, not wrapping and knitting a st, so that's where you could be off.

YOu are doing the second pattern row, as well, yes?

22otg, YO, k3, YO, ssk?

everything lines up - so that your kkk is centered over the OkO, and then the OKO is centered over the kkk, alternatively.

Yay! Well really, you aren't the only one that's had a problem with it. There's a kal group for it on Ravelry and several people have had questions about the lace pattern.

I just made this sweater in the small size as a Xmas gift. I just want to give you a hint when you get to the sleeves. Although the pattern calls for a 12-inch circular, I found that a 16-inch actually works better even for the small size. Plus, you'll find the sleeves easier to knit, because the "even" rows are all knits instead of purls. Good luck!

You don't have to do an eyelet increase, you can use whatever inc you did on the raglan shaping for the yoke.
