I'm knitting a medium and am up to the neck. Pattern says k28, turn, leave rem sts on holder. Dec 1st on next 6 rows. That would be on a purl row, do I Dec on the purl rows only?

The pattern says to work 2nd row of lace panel pat 1, giving instructions for 8 repeats, but that row is just a purl. What am I missing?

The pattern says to work 2nd row of lace panel pat 1, but the 2nd row says to purl. Am I not reading the pattern correctly?

what did you end up doing? I am wondering the same thing...just purl or is there a pattern to the even rows of it?

i'm having the same problem, can't get the lace pattern to work out.... i'm doing a size small .. Please Help!!!!

Thank you so much. It's working fine now and I look forward to completing this great looking tank.

I am trying to knit this beautiful Summer Breeze Tank in a size Med. but the number of stitches and repeats don't add up. I've tried several calculations but still no luck. What am I doing wrong?

Could you tell us which particular part of the pattern you are having trouble with? That will help us to identify the problem. Thanks, Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I have cast on 124 stiches and knitted 5 rows of garter stitch. Then changed to larger needles. Then row 1 K11 (that leaves 113 stitches) and worked 1st row of Lace panel Pat 1 8 times. There are not enough stitches left to do that since there are 15 stitches for each pattern and 8 times that is 120 stitches. (plus the pattern calls for knitting another 11 stitches at the end of the row.)

I took a look at the pattern and I think I see the problem! For a size medium, you only knit 2 stitches on each side of the Lace pattern. So, 15 (lace pattern stitches) x 8 repeats = 120 stitches. Add 4 border stitches (2 for each side) and you get 124 stitches. Editors of AllFreeKnitting
