Here's a swatch of Van Dyke Leaf Lace from BW #2. I am convinced there is an error in row 24, because I had to fudge an extra stitch out of thin air three times in a row. This is easily solved by working SL1, K1, PSSO, instead of SL2, K1, P2SSO in that row. You will notice that early in the square, the leaf veins look different. I liked the look of slipping both stitches together at once, as if to knit. I think it looks very clean. Took me a while to figure it out.
And there's my boo-boo. And the fact that trying to knit anything of a particular size has me nudging in, not easing out.
Sigh. I like the stitch pattern. I think it would be BEAUTIFUL worked on sleeves.

Your square looks nice. Could it be possible that my version of BW2 has row 24 already corrected? My row 24 has the SL2, K1, P2SSO in it.

Can't wait to see your next one.

ohhhhhhhhhh beautiful Bets. And don't be amazed if there is an error. I found 3 swatching for sock patterns. I sent the errors into Schoolhouse press.
I have the tree trunk and the lower branches done. But this is not a pattern to try when there are distractions. At least not for me.

Marie, that's how mine is written. And I am saying it's wrong.

Suzann, that big ooops where I have the little blue circle is where I was distracted. Doh! Can't frog backwards on this stuff...I might as well start over if I have to go back more than 2 rows.
