I've just recently picked up working knitted lace and what started me in lace is my female friends who've been asking me to knit them some stuff. I got a book that has a collection of lace patterns for working flat, not in the round which is what I would like to do considering that im new to lace. Here's what what Im not sure about: I have a flat pattern that says the pattern is "multiple of 13 + 5." and each row has a garter stitch at the first and last stitch. If i were to convert that to working in the round and want to eliminate the 2 garter stitches, where would i subtract them? from the 13? or from the 5?
I have a really cute pattern and would love to start knitting but im not sure how its gonna turn out. Does anyone know the right way for going about this?
