Need extra assistance with the lace rows? We’ve got you covered! Keep reading below for extra assistance.

Rows  3, 5, 7, 9 are all the same. The row is over 25 pegs. Pegs 1 and 2, and pegs 24 and 25 maintain the garter stitch edging, so the only pegs we have to worry about are pegs 3-23 (21 pegs total). We recommend to move all the stitches to their new positions before knitting the row.
