Lacey Edged ChicKami

Here is the beginnings of my version of ChicKami by Bonne Marie Burns. I started by finding a lace edging that I liked from Knitting On The Edge. Once I picked out the edging I wanted, I had to convert the pattern from knitting flat to knitting in the round. When you convert a pattern from flat to circular you basically reverse the directions on the WS row. So that means if the WS row says K2, P3, then you would P2, K3. Well the first row in this pattern is a WS row and you are supposed to Purl this row and every WS row, so I changed them all to Knit, super easy fix. Finally, I had to take out a K stitch on the end so that the whole thing would join properly.

Does any of this make any sense at all? I'm not always the best on explaining this kind of thing in writing. It's usually way easier for me to show someone. Why don't you all just come on down to Florida, and I'll show you. You wanted to go to Disney anyways right?
