I'm new to knitting daily and I am not sure if this is the right place to post this question, but I would appreciate any help you could give me. I consider myself a beginner knitter, but I think I am capable and ready to tackle the gobi cowl pattern I downloaded from your website. I started it only once and am prepared to start over and over until I get it right, but I don't want to waste time if the pattern is incorrect. Has anyone started it yet? I did a couple rows of the gobi lace pattern and it is not looking exactly like the picture, so either I am doing something wrong (which is very possible) or the pattern is just a little off. I think it is really fun to knit this pattern and want to continue, but I thought I would wait until someone more experienced tried to knit it to see if they are experiencing the same problem.
Thanks for your help!
Whoops sorry! MY BAD! I was off by a stitch and it looked like it was working, but just not like the picture, so I thought that the star for the repeat row was not in the right spot.
