You mean the beginning rib? Do you have the correct number of sts and are knitting the sts that look like knits, and purling the ones that look like purls on the row you're working on?
Yes I have the right number of begining stitches. I checked that about 3 times. And I check as I go to make sure I haven't lost a stitch here and there.

They look like knits and purls. I even tried doing the same row two times to see if I was messing that part up but that wasn't it. The stitches look like knits and purls just stretched out. Like they aren't tight enough. There's areas where if the stitches where tight enough it would look like ribs but it doesn't since it's stretched.

done with mine.
it's a bit large as I was generous with my measurements (better safe than sorry?) so, yes. I am not sure if I like it yet.
pictures tomorrow I hope.

Hmmm.... Sometimes in ribbing the sts look looser because you use a little extra yarn when you switch back and forth. You could try knitting the ribbing on smaller needles. Or a picture could help.

I think the problem is the "purl back of yarn over" decrease. I have looked on Youtube and found only the English style. Any advice??

These aren't decreases, just knitting the sts out of order making a twist. There are no decreases, the k2togs are offset by YOs which increase a stitch so the sts remain the same number.

Are you talking about this part - row 2: p1 (p1, p1 into first yo, p1 into the back of the second yo, p1) repeat lace pattern until 1 stitch left, p1?
On the previous row, you did a double YO which has 2 loops; when you get to it on this row, you would p into the first YO, then ptbl on the 2nd loop. There's a continental video at knitting help, http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-glossary - scroll down to p tbl. You can also just purl into the first loop and knit into the 2nd, it won't really change the look of the patter.

I figured it out. I was using Norwegian purling instead of the more traditional method and as such my tension was way loose. I ripped out my work and started over with traditional knits and purls and it looks fine now.
I spent most of yesterday working on it to get back to where I was before I ripped out. Now only a few more rows to go and I can start the lacey bit. Smiley

Lxm- can you take yours in a bit?

Do you not have any longer straights or do you just hate working that way? I'm making mine 100% on straights and it's working great!
Just started the lace row 1 first repeat!  The repetitiveness of the stitching is so nice since I can watch t.v. while knitting and not worry about what I'm doing.

I'm dying to knit something, I just might have to suck it up and use my straights, even though the stitches might get cluttered.  Wink

Mine are a little smushed but it still stretches as I knit.  so I can se what I'm doing and check myself as I go.

I'm not going to be done by my deadline. But I am going to finish this thing. I only have about 5 of the lace rows done. It's working quickly though! I can't beleive it! If I could knit ribbing so fast this would be done by now! lol
