Argh! Stupid "easy" lace! Sure, I can get through 2 repeats of branching out without a problem, but can I get through THIS? No, no I can't.

I keep ending up with 32 sitches instead of 31. I'm going to watch (myself) like a hawk and try to figure out where I'm going wrong. I don't think I'm adding an extra yarn over, or anything else obvious like that!
Just an idea : I kept ending with extra stitches too, and after a while wondering what the heck I was doing wrong (+ examining closely the frogged rows.. and there was many!!) I realised I actually forgot  the "p" in the skp.. ( in the original lace pattern as it was published in Marie Claire).

I've just looked at the Naive knitting lace pattern :  could correspond to forgetting the "psso" ?

Baby Cashmerino and silver charms.  This one's for my sister, who's beating breast cancer.  She quit her job as a software engineer for Oracle, went to culinary school and is now a pastry chef.  Yeah!  She also runs marathons and plays several musical instruments.  Charms:  spoon, spatula, treble clef, egg beater, measuring spoons, wedding cake, runner's leg.

Wool by Southwest Trading Company, garnets, pink freshwater pearls, quartz beads.  Southwest stretches their wool to increase the micron count, which makes the yarn very soft.

prunille, that may be it! I will pay attention as I work more on it tomorrow. (This weekend has been knitted-stuffed-things theme, first a womb, now a Mr. Dangly!)

Thanks for the tip!

And Sewer Rat, I am astounded by your prolific scarves!!!!!

Nutella, you'd think I wouldn't be making mistakes anymore after having knitted a gazillion of these things, but I, too, occasionally find that I have an extra stitch.  It's usually because I've forgotten to "psso," like Prunille said.  (Btw, good luck on your marathon!) 

Am I being a thread hog by posting every scarf I make?  Tell me now, 'cause i've got four more in the works.  mustconquerChristmasaaaah

You're not conquering the thread, Sewer Rat! It's impressive that you can crank out that many scarves in such a short period of time! It's like you're a one-person-scarf machine!

I love the way your Baby Cashmerino scarf turned out! I've been rather busy lately, so I haven't been able to work on it as much as I'd like to. I have to knit about 18" more before I'll be satisfied. Smiley

I love seeing all your scarves, Sewer Rat! I like seeing the same pattern in different yarns, and all the lovely beads.

I have some more variegated yarn on mail-order that should be perfect for another one of these.  Cool

I hope you guys can answer this quick. I've been following this thread like a little knitty stalker. I have finally decided to conquer my lace fear and give this a shot. Anywhoo.. I'm going to stop at the yarn store on the way home and pick up some southwest trading bamboo yarn. How many skeins does this use of that particular yarn?
