Week 1: Cast on and garter section
This first week we will be casting on and knitting the first garter panel. As mentioned on the last blog post, I am gearing up for fall and will be knitting with fingering weight yarn instead of lace weight, which is called for in the pattern. I have gone up in needle size to US size 6(4mm). I am decreasing my cast on to 70 stitches to accommodate the thicker yarn and larger needle while keeping with the same pattern measurements. The first two rows consist of purse stitch(yo, k2tog) and then we jump into garter stitch and work per pattern instructions. You will finish after completing a RS row and will then be ready to change yarn color and work on the lace section for next week!
