Converting a lace pattern to in the round

Pattern knit flat which I would like to convert to in the round

Pattern knit flat which I would like to convert to in the round

A one- row lace pattern is as follows;
*yo, slip1, k2, psso.
The psso over two knit stitches creates a nice vertical ridge with the psso’s alternating between left-slanting and right-slanting as it is repeated on every row.
I would like to convert this to knit in the round but can’t for the life of me figure out how to get that right- slanting decrease to convert to a left - slanting decrease on round 2 and still keep the decorative psso over two stitches.
Thanks!

converting pattern to knit in rounds

You're welcome, Diane. Try some lace pattern with just knit or purl on the wrong side. That would be much more pleasant to work with.

Thanks! I had come to that point as well but wondered if I was missing something. I guess I will have to use a lace pattern that is easier to convert to round.

convert a flat knitting pattern into round

Hi Diane,

Knit Flat Pattern;

Row 1: *yo,sl1, k2, psso; rep from* to end of row.
Repeat row 1


Knit Round Pattern
Round 1: *yo,sl1, k2, psso; rep from* to end of row.
Round 2: *P2, Sl1, turn and passover, (in order to pass the slip st over the p2, I had to turn the work and did it awkwardly. Then I slipped the 2 p sts back onto the left needle and turned work again to continue with the rest of the pattern.), yo: repeat from * to the end of the row.

Repeat round 1 and 2.

I personally wouldn't want to do this in round because it takes so much time. I'd rather knit it in flat and add one selvage stitch to each end for seaming.

Thanks for visiting and sharing your thought.

Ratcha
