My red lace scarf is getting prettier every day. I knitted the first lace section, then quickly completed the keyhole, where the other end of the scarf will slip through. Now, I'm halfway through knitting more of the lace pattern, to go around the neck.
Lace knitting can be a challenge, but this pattern isn't difficult at all. There is a four row lace design, which has two "resting" rows of mostly purl stitches. I keep track of the four rows by using four coins to count them. Much easier than a traditional row counter.
When I start knitting the four row pattern, I have all four coins to my left. As I complete each row, I move a coin over to my right side. This helps me remember which row I'm knitting.....especially when watching television.
Do you have any tricks for counting rows as you knit?
