It was getting close to 1:00 a.m. last night when I finished the second repeat of the Lower Flower Basket chart. For some reason I looked down the introductory blurb at the top of the pattern and read "every wrong-side row is purled"
Purled? I've been knitting every wrong side row. Everyone says that lace looks like a muddled blob until you block it and then you can see the pattern clearly, so I just assumed that that's what was going on here. \
If I had looked at the big picture in the pattern, I might have seen it earlier, but to conserve printer ink I only copied the parts with the written pattern and the smaller picture from the Interweave Knits website.
I was just beginning to get a glimpse of understanding how the repeats happen in this pattern, was just thinking that I was starting to get the big picture. Yeah, right. Wrong!
