As you know, I've been knitting an afghan out of lace panels:
I'm planning on a 6-panel throw, and it occurred to me it'd be nice if three of the panels slant the other way, for symmetry. I might even pair them. But to do that, I had to reverse the lace pattern. As well as putting the yos at the end rather than the start of the first row, and progressing right instead of left, the decreases (on both sides) had to be changed, so they'd slant nicely.
Fortunately for me, the original decreases were a skp and a p2tog-tbl. That made the reverses of them k2tog and p2tog — the easiest two (imo) to execute! Because the yos aren't reversed, there is a slight difference in the appearance, but honestly I think this is not too bad so far (note it is stretched out here, because still on the needles):
As for the contest: Leave me a comment telling me one challenging thing you've attempted with a craft, and I'll enter you in a drawing for a copy of the February 2009 (click here for an overview of that issue) Knit'n'Style magazine. I'm destashing five magazines over the next couple of weeks so you'll see more of these opportunities. I'll draw a name next Saturday, February 27 morning so get your comment in by Friday! But don't worry, more mags being offered soon.
