Has anyone else noticed an error in the pattern?
After the lace pattern is complete and you knit 3" in stockinette, and begin the shaping, the number of stitches adds up to 195, not 200. Apologies for the vagueness--I don't have the pattern with me now.
I have 168 stitches (increased from 140) so I'm trying to figure out how many to have for the front and the back sections. However, if you read further, it seems that you're supposed to pretty much divide the stitches in half.
I don't see an error, but maybe it's just me. After you knit the complete the 4 lace repeats, you have a decrease round and you decrease (for the smallest size) 14 stitches evenly around, then work in garter stitch for 4 rounds. So for all the stockinette, you'd be working over 186 stitches. Then, when you work the shaping, it has you divide the stitches in half so you'd be working 93 stitches for the front and 93 for the back. Then the shaping begins. Let me know if you have questions...sometimes I have issues when trying to explain stuff.
