Okay, so I showed (in the previous post) a tiny image of the chart I was going to follow. Once I got the rhythm of the lower rows down, I kept at it. It is not doing what I wanted, not doing what I expected … but I sorta-kinda LIKE it, at this stage. Note, the scissors tip is only to hold down an obstinate warpy needle cable. 🙂 And at the bottom and sides are JUST garter stitch rows to make a flat non-curling border for testing the stitch pattern.
My original intention was to use this as one band along a triangular shawl, but because of what it is doing now, it may become something quite different. 🙂
