I made such a rookie mistake yesterday-I read work work k2, p2 ribbing and took off.
I didn't read the rest of the sentence or refer to the chart as instructed.
I had to rip out the whole thing;
56 stitches in the center front and back were in a different pattern.
I got this far on the remedy knitting.
I have been terribly sick and I am claiming illness for the lack of brain reasoning!
I hope to catch up today!

Hope you are feeling better soon.ReplyDelete
I think we ALL make rookie mistakes no matter how long we've been knitters (and for me it's going on 55 years).
I would have called it a 'design alteration' myself.ReplyDelete
If it makes you feel any better I did the exact SAME thing!!! LolReplyDelete
We were just talking about this yesterday in the crafting group - we all said these mistakes were common and a rite of passage that we learn and relearn from time to time.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I think the more experienced the knitter the more epic the mistake.. I think part of it is, we are so experienced, we don't always read the pattern as thoroughly as we should, because we feel we already know what it "should" say.ReplyDelete
I read K2 as K2tog!! It took way too long to figure that one out. LOL!ReplyDelete
Yup, I say blame it on sick-brain!ReplyDelete
