Oh no! You ripped it? I'm not sure how you can get away from the wavy cord. Lace tends to twist and turn the stitches above and below it - for example, cast on edges and cast off edges.

I can't wait to see what the final product though. Very pretty!.


I think the cord looks better in its non-wawy form, as in the first picture, and I really like the contrast of plain stockinette against the lace. I'm amazed by your patience and willingness to frog and try new things until you get it right. I'm looking forward to seeing what you decide on.

PS. I have cast on for the chinese lace pullover, and so far I like it a lot. I'm using Garnstudio's Muskat (100% mercerized cotton) in a deep plum color. I've made a few changes: I'm knitting the body in the round up to the armholes, since I found the lace much easier to knit that way (no p2tog tbl...) and I'm using less decreases, since my waist isn't exactly hourglass-figured. Going up a size would probably make the shoulder part huge on me - I usually find garments to large in the shoulders when they fit my tummy.


I actually like the wavy cord. To me it sort of blends in with the lace, making the whole thing look almost alive. But then I often go for irregularities and waves rather than for neat straight lines.
