There was only one and a half repeat left until I could start the ribbing. I tried it on. I had just started on that repeat to do the pattern on both back and front of the leg and it just wouldn't fit anymore. It was too tight to be able to put it on without lots of tugging and pulling. You know where this is going don't you?
Well, I pulled my trusty size 0 circular and started going through each stitch below that pattern repeat and I ripped. Why I didn't just unknit is beyond me. And it just wouldn't work out and all I did was make it worse. I ended up ripping the whole thing out. I really like the pattern but haven't had much luck with it so far. I'm sure I'll try it again but I've given up to finish a pair by the end of the month. I hope I have better luck with the June pattern! : )
