Drops Project

I won a £100 voucher on LoveKnitting.com back in April and decided that I would make myself a sweater for winter. I have lots of ones that I want to make but thought this Drops Admiral’s Braid would be my first one.

I cast on, then realised I was not sure what n edge stitch was, as I have never needed one, so a quick trot about the internet, and hey presto, I now which one of the many I need to use.

Then, starting the pattern rib I read M.1 as make one, as most people would, then when getting to the end of the repeats I was left with 19 stiches on my needle. I re-read the pattern and no, it seems wrong. I then thought that rather than the repeat from * to * 4 times (5 in total) I would remove one of the repeats and be left with 31 stitches.  Looking again at the pattern I noticed that there was a little chart M.1 with 31 stitches. BINGO! I sussed it out, so frogged the lot and am about to start again.

I keep telling myself to read the whole pattern before starting, but my advice seems to fall on my deaf ears, and of course, I screw things up again. Will I ever learn?

Stay tuned for updates.
