Pretty dress, pretty fabric, and adorable child!
82  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Lucet braiding? on: March 29, 2010 03:41:25 PM
So today I went to the usual thrift stores (got some vintage afghan patterns for 25 cents a booklet, yay!) and I saw a book with a lucet and a small ball of yarn. Looks like someone bought it and tried it and didn't like it. I immediately grabbed it, and figured out the basic gist of it from the book, but now I'm not sure what to do with the cords I'll make. I'm not into the SCA, who seem to be the primary users. I've already figured I can use it in place of i-cords when knitting, or cords for drawstring bags. I thought of making a beaded curtain or something using thin cotton and beads, too. I'm having a bit of a mental block though, so I'm hoping some of you have suggestions for me. Smiley

Ohhhhhhhh. I've got it now. Thanks alicepalace. Cheesy I'll frog it and do that, since I (think I) know what I'm doing.

I'm sure this is going to sound sadly newbish... but I'm quite new to knitting and this is one of the more complicated patterns I've tried... (I suck at reading patterns and thus, I usually end up winging it. As I plan to use this for Christmas gifts, I'd like to do it right... plus I'm a bit of a perfectionist.)

Anyway, I'm only on the third repeat of row 5, but it looks wrong to me. I don't see the ribbing. I mean, I can see the first two rows have ribbing but from there it gets messed up. I assume I messed up earlier on... Probably here:
Row 3: Sl 1, work 3 sts, place marker, work to last 2 sts, turn work.
Can anyone explain this in the easiest terms possible? Like, the work 3 sts part? Do I k2 p1? Then would I start with p1 k2 after the marker? That's what I've been doing and it seems wrong. Also, when I turn, do I continue with the pattern? Like, if I end on a lone purl, when I turn would I start with the last purl and then knit?

If this even makes sense, I'll be surprised.
