Hi everyone!
called "ribbed lace bolero," and you can find the pattern through this

<http://kellymaher.wordpress.com/2007/07/04/ribbed-lace-bolero/>

Problem is, how do I figure out how much to cast on?? I don't get it! I
measured my shoulder width at 18", adding 8" for sleeves, x4 (for gauge)
which = 104. But I don't get the whole rounding down part. Do you
understand the instructions? I sent an email to the designer for help,
but thought this might be faster...lemme know!

BY THE WAY, I'm hosting at my place on Thursday September 4th from
6:30-9:30. Lourdes is bringing banana bread. Joyce, would you bring a
nice vegan appetizer? I think I'll make hummus w/pita or salsa w/chips.
If anyone else would like to bring a little something, feel free. I
think at least 7 of us will be there!

Thanks again everyone,
Lee

• Hi Lee, So, you round down to the next number that fits the formula of: 4x+2 (4x just denotes a multiple of 4). If you came up with 104 stitches, you round

Hi Lee,
So, you round down to the next number that fits the formula of: 4x+2
(4x just denotes a multiple of 4). If you came up with 104 stitches,
you round down to 100--the next-lower multiple of 4--then add 2, for
your edge stitches. So you cast on 102. The stitch pattern must be 4
stitches long, and there is a stitch on each edge that is not part of
the pattern.

Clear as mud?

Cute pattern, btw. I wish I could come over next week, but I work
weekday nights! Have fun anyway.
