I'm probably a bit late but happy birthday Juniperl13!

Ceedah, yours is coming up great!  Smiley eunnyjang, yours look fantastic! I'm trying for the dress version too.
Work got busy and I'm lagging behind terribly. I think I better get started again or it'll wind up on the side for a while... Sad No one is doing it with sports weight or DK weight still?

I apologize for being annoying about this, but I am really, really clueless about what is going on with my Butterfly.  Sad  I undid the second repeat on the body and did it again, meticulously, along with a third repeat, but I have the exact same problem!  Here is what's hopefully a better picture than the last one:



I'm wracking my brains to try to think what's going wrong.  The only spot where things didn't *quite* work out the way they seemed like they should have was at the end of the fifth row.  The only reason I had enough stitches to complete the fifth row was because I had the extra two from my selvedge.  Otherwise, I would have run out.  I didn't worry about this too much because the extra (and missing, after row 5) stitches end up getting added back in at the end of row 7.

I'm thinking...how many stitches am I supposed to have at the end of every row?  Is this somehow causing my problem?  I'm doing the extra-small, so I have 87 stitches at the beginning (not counting selvedge).  This means I do 14 iterations of the six-stitch repeat every row, followed by one additional half an iteration.  Since the first row starts (and therefore ends) with a (yfwd, k1, fwd), this means at the end of the row I should have 89 stitches.  Right?  End of 3rd row, it should be the same number.  End of 5th row, I should have two fewer stitches since it ends with (K2tog tbl, K1, K2tog) - that would mean back to 87.  Yet for some reason, I find myself with 85 at this point.  How?  (I'm totally thinking out loud right now, if you can't tell...sorry...)  It must be something in the 3rd row!  But what?  I *think* I'm doing the dec2 correctly - it's the same as in the frill, right?  I always end up with 6 stitches in between the markers, so I'm very lost.  Ack, ack, ack.  Any advice?  I'm not inclined to just undo and redo it again unless I actually have a plan for something to do differently, now that I know it's not just lack of attention and care like I thought it was...

Ceedah: every single row has the SAME # of st. 
I think you should omit the first and last yo (as it is not accompanied by a dec and would change your st count). 
I usually count my st on the WS (purled) rows.  It seems that you have staggered the pattern. 
I also had that problem, the double dec were not aligned with the diamonds, and I emailed Rowan.  They replied, and I posted their reply on this thread.  Since my last post did not answer your questions, maybe the answer from Rowan would be more clear? 
Hope this helps!

Okay, ack, I should've read back more carefully!  I'd seen all of that about omitting the beginning yfwds, but I thought it had to do with when it was time for the decreases in the main part of the dress!  I think I get it now, and I'll give that a try.  Thanks so much.

It's here! Grin



I hope to start the bottom today. Next weekend I'll be going on a long roadtrip, perfect time to get lots of knitting done. Until then, not much will be finished on it. I'm going to make the dress version out of the blue. I ordered the pink just because it looked so pretty, but I have no plans for it yet. The yarns are from HPY.com in the colors thistle and barbie.

Hi girls,

I'm posting my progress so that I'll start pushing myself to get a move on.


I have 4 more repeats before I can start on the body. Sports weight yarn, knitting in the round. The color of the fabric under Butterfly is the one I'm intending to use to make a shift dress for under Butterfly, it's a chocolately wine color as best I can describe it.  Grin

*Opps sorry, I clicked Reply at the Butterfly Knitalong, not sure why it came out as a  new Topic. Just PM melidomi to help move it back.
