For the nupps, I started slipping three, purling two together, and passing the slipped stitches over. It's still a little awkward but is not longer impossible.  Wink

Okay, I feel kinda silly asking this, but.....



are you supposed to knit this on circulars? Since it ends up big? I've never made a shawl before.

I don't remember what the pattern says, but I prefer to use circulars for all projects that are large-ish.

I'm making the Flower Basket Shawl from IK Fall 2004 right now (same designer as the Swallowtail), and I actually switched to circulars because my stitches were getting crowded on the straight needles.

Especially with lace, it's easier if you can spread your stitches out...helps you to keep your place!

That makes sense. I thought about it after I started. I'll go find some...

Frogging? Ouch.

Some people say sticking the whole thing in the freezer for a bit makes it easier to frog. Pretty much just tink back a stitch at a time and you'll be less likely to damage the yarn.

If you're feeling particularly brave, you can drop the stitches in question and pick it back up in pattern. For that, you need zero distractions and a stiff drink. This was my correction method of choice when knitting (screwing up) Kiri.

Ever feel that you *have* to use a signature?

Thanks! I've heard of the freezer thing before. I'll have to give it a shot. Stitch by stitch will take a while, but I guess it will have to do...

Hi
I love this pattern, but have never knitted lace before.  I am a bit lost with the the chart and directions.  How do you get from 7 stitches to 27?  Can someone help me please.   
Thanks

I was confused by this when I started, too. All those yarn overs will increase your stitches to 27.
