I'm totally confused. Apparently this knits from bottom up which it does not say and I'm making a two tone one. The M.1 on the video is different than what prints out, so it is done on just two rows in beginning? Then do M.2 which one pattern is 6 rows, right?

DROPS Design 31.10.2016 kl. 09:31:

Dear Sherry, correct, M.1 is worked only once at the very beg of the pattern: Round 1: K8, slip 1, K2 tog, psso, K8 (= 2 sts dec in each repeat), Round 2: P all sts. Then work the 17 sts in M.2 around, ie 17 sts x 6 rounds. Happy knitting!

I am knitting the small size and started theM2 pattern which is worked over 18 stitches: K2tog 3 times, 1 yo between 2 sts 6 times, K2 tog 3 times. I have 221 stitches on my needle which leaves me with 5 stitches at the end of the row. Do I just knit them ? Will that be the back?

DROPS Design 10.09.2015 kl. 09:59:

Dear Mrs Lasky, lace row in M.2 is worked over 17 sts as follows: K2 tog 3 times, then (YO, K1) repeat from (to) a total of 5 times, YO, K2 tog 3 times. You will repeat this a total of 13 times around (13 x 17 sts= 221 sts). See also video below. Happy knitting!

Ja det stemmer, målene skal ganges med 2 så får du målet hele vejen rundt.

Mette Isen 12.09.2009 - 16:46:

Jeg forstår ikke de opgivene mål i opskriften. Skal de ganges med 2? kan stadig ikke få det til at passe med målene på skulderen. Hååber i kan hjælpe. Venlig hilsen Mette Mobil +4526202040
