hey all!

I am in the process of designing my first tank! I have found a perfect lace pattern I want to use for the bottom part of the tank, but really want to knit it on circs because I dont want to mess with seams! especially with lace. so all the right-side rows differ but all wrong-side rows say to purl everything. so since I want to do this on circs I would knit this, yes? because you are supposed to do the opposite I believe. and then when I want to do stock stitch on the upper part of the tank, I will knit every row or purl every row? thanks guys just needed some further clarification!

Yupp, you got it - every second row will just be knit plain and when you get to the stocking stitch section, it will all be knit.  Good luck!

Remember that lace tops have seams for a reason: many lace patterns bias, so the seams may be necessary to prevent the top twisting by providing some structure. Check people's blogs to see if they have tried it maybe and how it turned out?

Also, a lot of lace patterns have an extra stitch or two on the side which you may not need. If a pattern is a multiple of 6 sts plus 2, you may only need to CO the multiple of 6 and not the extra 2. Check the pattern by knitting a couple repeats flat to see if you actually do need to include any extra stitches or not.

thanks for the extra input guys! I am thinking I will want to do some seams now.. or have like a 5 stitch wide stock stitch going down the sides so i could still do it in the round. but i did also already know about the +__ stitches thing! but thanks for reminding me!

ok guys another questions.. so ive decided, no lace. all stock and garter stitch just stripes of each. so far garter do I purl every row? (I'm doing in on circs)

EDIT! I found it

in the round knitting..

garter: knit 1 round, purl 1 round
stock stitch: knit every round
reverse stock : purl every round

good thing I looked it up I would have been doing reverce stock!
