That's manageable. You have 2 sets of sts that are repeated 7 times between a set of non-repeating sts, so you can't lump all the repeats together.

I agree, seems that sometimes you just have to concentrate and in order to work, this is as simple as it gets! I appreciate your input, Suzeeq.

The way A is written seems clear to me- I can't think of a clearer way to write it.

(I rewrite a lot of patterns onto notecards in groupings & terms that make sense in my head. This one I would leave as is although I would write the "groups" on separate lines on the card.)

Whatcha designing?

Oh, you know me, a lace shawl that starts as a circular and turns into a triangle.....Can it be done??? We shall soon see! I've been working on the pattern since January and after no less than 3 trashcans full of "this won't work", it has been interesting. I hope to be able to release it for test knitting by the weekend. Wish me luck!

I do triangular shawls and add extra panels to turn them into semi-circular ones. So starting as a circular and going to a triangle isn't so weird.

Writing a pattern so someone else can do it is much harder than just winging it by yourself. I made a cross between Clapotis and the Sunday Market shawl and it's been interesting trying to write it out.

I'd love to see that! Now, is a clapotis wavy and rounded at the corners?

I'm at the transition point and have done an indention, now I need to decide whether the center of my corners should be the indention or vice versa. I tried it one way with a regular bind off and it was too tight. I discovered the bind off where you k2, then knit these together and k1 again, passing the first st over the second and it seems nice and stretchy. And it leaves a tiny little picot so that I can pull it out when blocking and that gives it a nice edging.

Then I get to thinking about how I want the edges to be decorative yet the shawl is super lacy and I just worry about too much....all of it gets to wandering around in my brain(what there is left of it) and thus the 3 trashcans full of "this won't work".... the whole time trying to make sure that the pattern stays on pattern....know what I mean??? Chill and coffeetime are my salvation.

The clapotis is a rectangle knit on the diagonal - you start with just a couple sts, inc at the end of every row, then continue increasing on just the knit rows and dec at the end of the purl rows until you get to the end section. It's main feature is the drop sts. Here's the Ravelry link - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/clapotis

The SMS - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...y-market-shawl - is knit as a straight rectangle with drop sts. I didn't like how the straight edge was, so decided to do it diagonally like the clapotis. So it was a very simple change, but it's hard to describe so it comes out right.
