This is the stitch pattern I'd like to knit from the top down - it's written to be knit from the bottom up and the more I work with it I think I'm going to have to work it as written and change my shawl design! It's complicated!
Question though that doesn't have to do with Pi, but any input would be appreciated: I'm thinking about knitting a shawl from the top down, but the border I want to end with is written from the bottom up. Can I reverse the border pattern somehow so it will work with my top down design? Thanks!
Well, lace that is shaped with bias is different on the cast on and bind off edges, but usually looks OK either way, just different. What I would do is make a little garter or St st swatch, and then try the border on it as it's written and see if you like it. If not, we can look at it closer and see if it can be modified or if I've seen anything similar anywhere that will work on top down.
And, since I'm on chart B-10, I've used up every single stitch marker I have in the house to keep track!
Speaking of charts - what charting software do you use if I may ask? I have a lacy scarf pattern I've designed I'd like to put into print and a chart would be far easier to read than a written out description of every single row. There are several out there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions. Thanks!
