I don't have any way to look at this whole pattern and I'm not familiar with it, but from the little bit you give here I wonder if on row 3 when you do the last repeat, instead of doing the last sk2po (which I believe uses 3 stitches), to instead do the ssk, k1 (3 stitches) then the 12 border stitches. Does it work out if you do that?

Okay, it's telling you that the last time you repeat the lace pattern -
yo, k11, yo, sk2po - instead of doing sk2p, you're going to do an ssk, then k1 and do the 12 border sts. If you don't have enough sts left for that, then maybe you're knitting a stitch after the YOs before you do the decrease; that uses up a stitch and you'll be left too short. A YO is just wrap around the needle and go on to the next stitch in the pattern, which may be a knit stitch or a decrease.

The beginning of BO 1, is frustration for me as it does not say knit first JUST to BO 1...do they mean just lift it over the other without knitting anything at the start of pattern?

I looked at this pattern. I've never seen anything that said to CO 2 stitches and then row 1: BO1, kfb. To bind off I always knit 2 stitches and then lift the first one over the second one, but here is what I tried here and it did seem to work and make a picot right at the tip of the cloth. I knit 1, then I did a kfb in the second stitch. Now I had 3 loops on the RH (right hand) needle. Then I lifted the first stitch loop over the 2 loops made from the kfb. This gets you back to only 2 stitches and makes a picot at the end.

After row 2 you have 3 stitches. Row 3 uses 3 so that is right. After doing row 3 you have 5 stitches. On row 4 I did a regular BO by knitting the first 2 and then lifting the 1st one over the 2nd one. Row 4 has: 4. BO 1, k2, kfb so that uses 5 stitches and works out right with a regular BO. On row 4 and all rows thereafter you just use a regular BO.

I will write down what you have written and follow it. Binding off is now trouble it was just starting off with a BO 1.....Not able to figure that beginning bind off as usually you knit 1, then bind off. will give it a try. thank you.

Here's a nonpdf link - http://bittybow.blogspot.com/2008/05...h-pattern.html

It does say to CO 2 sts, then the first row is BO 1, kfb. R 2, is sl1, kfb which supposes 2 sts also. What I'd do CO 2, k1 kfb, then on R 2 BO 1, kfb, and go on to row 3 which is Sl1, kfb, kfb. R4 begins with a BO. The only way you can BO 1 st on row 1 while doing a kfb in the 2nd stitch is to k1, kfb, slip the new st back to the L needle and pass the first st over the 2nd, then slip the st back to the R needle. Similar to what you did.
