Ok, so I'm trying to make these

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=44961.0

and there's a part where she mentions reversing the lace pattern, which I want to do so they will be mirror image.  Because I'm anal like that.  So, how do I go about reversing it?  Do I just start at the end of the sentence and go backwards on each step? 

This is the first lace pattern I'm attempting so I'm kind of confused.  If I end up needing them longer after I do the 4 repeats of the lace pattern, do I just add a repeat?  Or will that screw up the parts after the lace pattern is finished?


Any help is greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!! Smiley

If you need them longer just add repeats of the pattern.  It won't screw anything up.

As to reversing the pattern, yes, basically you just do the sentence backward.  But you have to use a different decrease than slip-knit-psso.

You may be right, I may be crazy...

this is entirely hypothetical since i've never actually knitted lace, but, looking at the design you could easily start the second arm warmer 14 rows in to the original pattern, and then add them to the end of the pattern. SO you'd do the original ribbing, then start on row 15.

Since the 28 rows are for a zig and then a zag and you want a zag and then a zig, this should work. But i'd make the first one and then see if row 14/15 is where the line switches o.O it should be based on the math... but since i've not actually made these i don't know for sure.

hope this makes sense :3

Instead of a SKP, you'd use k2tog to slant the other direction.

I find it easiest to reverse lace just with a chart.
