The little swatch pattern doesn't indicate stitch count to complete the pattern. I'd like to modify it for a fingerless glove~~I just love knitting these. BTW, I love reading my KD emails. Thanks!

13 stitches make one complete lotus pattern.  No the swatch pattern doesnt indicate stitch count but you can add up the stitches to use for the base in row 6.  When you count, you do not count the yarn over increases.

The Lotus pattern is a multiple of 10 + 1 stitches. The author, Carol Rhoades, made the swatch that you see in the photo by casting on 35 sts for 3 repeats  plus 2 garter edge sts at each side. (Note that edge sts are not included in the pattern.)

Hope this helps,

Kathleen

Thank you so much Kathleen. I think my brain would have exploded trying to figure it out.
