Tea Rose Shawlette - Chart B Done

Another not so great photo taken with the flash last night.  I first knit Chart B on May 28, 2012 and then again on July 15, 2012.  The pattern at this point is not that hard, my issue the first time around was that the lace was not open enough.  On Charts B and D there are a number of instances where you have to do a yarn over between a knit stitch and a purl stitch or vice versa, and wrapping the yarn in those scenarios has always been a little problematic for me.  Add to that the fact that there is lace patterning on both right and wrong side rows and the situation becomes even trickier because those yarn overs don't always lay nicely and now you're trying to work something like a purl 2 together through the back loop through one and you just have a recipe for frustration.  But I'll worry about Chart D when I get to it, for now I have Chart C to work, which is just more rows of Chart A, and that is a very easy stitch pattern.  In fact it looks like a variation of the Daisy stitch, except instead of working a purl 3 together, yarn over, purl 3 together in the same 3 stitches, you knit 3 together, yarn over, knit 3 together in the same three stitches.

Pattern:  Tea Rose Shawlette by Julia Temiseva
