Not Reverse Stockinette

Hey All...

I know several people have wondered how this pattern would look if they did regular (instead of reverse) stockinette for the flat panels. Well check out this photo... Yes, I have to admit that it was an accident. I never intended to do it this way. But nevertheless, there it is, and I intend to keep it.

In other news, I have been using the needle-changing-to-avoid-bumps method to great affect. The thing is flat as a pancake, and I have not even blocked it yet!!!! (If anything, the LACE panels are slightly raised because of the larger needle size, I guess.)

I'm using the Soft Linen in brown called for in the pattern, available from my LYS,, in St. Louis, MO. Call Sandy, she'll ship.

So that's my story.

I'm glad you posted this, I've been going between wanting to do the called-for reverse stockinette, or regular stockinette. I think I may like regular stockinette more, now that I've seen yours.

I think it looks fine both ways. Love the color you are using.

It looks great. I'm only a couple of repeats into the back and I'm going to rip it out and do stockinette, I just haven't gotten around to it.

It looks wonderful! You mentioned that you think the lace is raised up a bit...but I think the lace will flatten out after blocking.
Wonderful color choice! Keep us posted! Love to see photos of your progress!
