I started the pattern on January 4, as its my practice to start my travel knitting before the trip. I want to work through the basics to make sure there aren't any gotchas. This was particularly important since I was going to replace the ribbing with a brioche rib.
As mentioned in an earlier post, I didn't get much knitting done on vacation. So, I picked it up to finish it before moving on to other knitting. I finished it with about 18" of yarn remaining, but only got six rows of the final netting section.
A few notes should you attempt this project with brioche ribbing:
Row 1a (RS): KFB, (SlYO, BRK) * , (SlYO, K1)after the first section repeat. This row ends with a BRK on the initial row and ends with a SlYO, K1 on subsequent repeats. It doesn't really matter -- just continue in pattern. It only matters that the A rows start with a KFB.
Row 1b (WS): P1, (BRK, SlYO) * , K1
Row 2a (RS): KFB, (BRK, SLYO) * , K1
Row 2b (WS): P1, (BRK, SLYO) * , K2
BO row (WS): Finish off this row in straight rib to transition to the next section, ending with a KFB. (Don't forget this last KFB, as it sets you up correctly to start the lace netting section.
