Did anyone answer this question yet as i am also confused. I don't understand jumping back and forth between the row to the chart. Can't it be written by row with all instruction written within that row instead of jumping back and forth? Very confusing, am i missing something here?
Thanks for any help

Not sure if you figured this out yet or not.
It is stated in Row 2, in parentheses, of the Bluebells Lace pattern at the top of the page....
Row 2: yo, k3, sk2p (sl1, k2tog, pass sl st over), k3, yo, k1
So you would slip 1, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over.
It only explains it the one time then uses the abbreviation after that.
I hope this helps!

Linda Shephard did you have extra stitches after the pattern was done for each row?? I have had extra stitches on the 4th, 5th and 6th rows.

ok disregard my first question...figured that one out...I am wondering in the bluebells lace pattern the last sentence says to repeat rows 2-9 but the bluebell pattern only has 8. should i purl a row 9 (odd rows purl)if I do than the row 1 will also be a purl row....I was hoping for some clarification. thanks
