Well. The case of the misinterpreted pattern has happened AGAIN!
This time it was the poor sweet Moseys that were struck down by my ineptitude to clearly interpret a pattern. So I'm cruising along with the 2x2 rib then I read the line :
"Eyelet Round: Work 24 sts in pattern, k2tog, yo, p2, yo, k2tog, continue in pattern to end."
So what MY mind thought that meant was to do the 2x2 rib for 24 stitches then work "k2tog, yo, p2, yo, k2tog" as a pattern for the rest of the round. But of course repeating that exact segment doesn't make sense so I adjusted a little so it would fit, thinking I had read it wrong or couldn'tunderstand so must adapt, and off I went.
After finishing the eyelet round *sigh* I went on to continue the 2x2 rib and am now at the 7-inches-out-of-9 point.
So long and ribby!
I was SO excited, Mosey was FLYING off the needles! I had even sewn in the ends and ball joins as I went along. But then.. then I looked at it and wondered how the eyelets would be covered. They're at the 3 inch mark, that won't be hidden underneath the fold over rib cuff... if the eyelets were at the 6 inch mark they would but.. hmmm..
The woven in end, waiting to be trimmed...
So I pitted my clearly tired or wandering brain power at it, looked over ravelry for anyone else exclaiming "oh no! There's an error in the pattern!" and sure enough - no one. So... then I figured it out.
Why oh WHY did I choose to take "pattern" in the first half of the sentence to mean 2x2 rib but then conveniently FORGET about that when I reached the word "pattern" at the end of the sentence! Gah!!
Nevermind, at least I have it worked out now :) And the fabulous Susan Power was NOT mistaken in her writing of this magnificient little pattern! So now I must frog out the 5 inches or so of ribbing to get back down and mend that eyelet row!
Wish me luck and better comprehension in the future!
