I was so sure this pattern was right, but it ended up being WAY wrong. Oh well. I will just have to adjust it. Also, I think I need to use MUCH smaller needles. I dont plan on making the laces look like that, I just sewed something on really quick. I dont think I calculated the decreasing rows/color pattern right. They are exactly the same on both sides as far as increasing and decreasing, but the striping was off by 2 rows. :( bummer. I will just give this one to my daughter, who I'm sure will become the owner of many odd shaped items.
You live and learn.
