Aargh, need help with lace edging!
Hello! I'm looking at a pattern, which contains this lace edging:

Lace edge (repeat 6 times/ wrist warmer).

row 1: k2, yo, p2 tog., k1, (2 yo , k2 tog.) 2 times, k1
row 2: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times, yo, p2 tog., k2
row 3: k2, yo, p2 tog., k3, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, 1r
row 4: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times , k3, yo, p2 tog., k2
row 5: k2, yo, p2 tog., k5, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, k1
row 6: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times , k5, yo, p2 tog, k2
row 7: k2, yo, p2 tog., k7, (2 yo, k2 tog) 2 times, k1
row 8: k2, (k1, p1 in yo*, k1 ) 2 times, k7, yo, p2 tog., k2
row 9: k2, yo, p2 tog., k14
row 10: cast of 8st., k5, yo, p2 tog., k2

On row 3, what does "1r" mean on the end of the row? I think I understand everything else...though we'll see when I try actually working it. TIA!

One round or one repeat? I dunno, it could be a typo. Which pattern is it?

Oh whew, I was hoping you or Jan would come riding to the rescue!

It's this one, Anna's blog, Stickfrossa. English isn't her first language, and though I'm really impressed at her command of written English, it wouldn't surprise me if it was a typo...

I think it might be a K1...if you look at the other odd rows they end with a K1 while the even end with a K2 (until row 14)...I looked it up but didn't see anyone commenting on it.

Have you worked Row 3 yet? What are you left with at the end?

So she probably means K1, like the ends of her other rows? Fab. Thanks, Sue -- the calvary saved the day again!

Oop -- sorry Dustinac -- only just now saw your post! I haven't worked it yet, I was reading it over to see whether I understood everything...I haven't done a chart yet to see if it all works as written, either, but I think I might, as I've never worked lace sideways before.

Okay, I sat down to try the thing, and kept ending up one stitch short on row 4 (as in, instead of K2 on the end of the rows, I kept only having one available stitch left in the edging section).

So I sat down to try and chart it to see where the error was. As far as this rank tyro can see, it seems to me that rows 4, 6, and 8 have a stitch at the end that slops over into the ribbing section, and row 10 is one short (so you end up with only 9 stitches instead of 10 for the next lace edging repeat). But I don't see anyone in the comments asking for corrections or help...so am I doing something wrong?

Is there maybe some knitting convention I don't know that Anna assumes that an experienced knitter will know?

Aargh, help!

I came up with this definition:

Make 1.[R] A Made stitch by a Bar increase to the right

from this link: http://www.heirloomknits.com/vintage...viations.shtml

Hope this helps.

Ah HA! That would probably solve the entire problem with the mysterious disappearing stitch right there, then. Yay! That probably means I can start this project now -- Jan, yer a doll!

My pleasure, Zina. You've helped me out so much that it's the least I can do.
What a pretty pattern, too!

Happy Knitting,
Jan
