In Row 5 1, we will tell you where to place st markers with 3 border sts at the beg of the row, followed by 6 sets of 12 sts each (for the Lace Pattern) and 3 border sts at the end of the row. As you work each RS row, count your sts between markers. You should have 12 sts between the Lace Pattern markers on every row. If you do not have 12 sts, examine each st in your last rep and make any needed fixes (unravel st by st to make corrections) before continuing with the row.The above is only a summary of corrections; the corrected pattern text is below (if free) or shipped upon completion of order (if purchased)

GAUGE:
18 sts + 19 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Lace Pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.
