The Accidental redo

We’ve had such dark and dreary weather here for the past week so I decided to rip out the last part of the Accidental Shawl to the dropped stitch.  No point in waiting and forgetting the plan.  I also began to join the other colors sooner to make them blend in better.  The red is definitely a brighter shade than the original but I think it still works.

Instead of adding more eyelets (and doing the math so they would line up), I just increased stitches at regular intervals.  Then the last seven rows before binding off in a picot edge, I added two rows of eyelets without increasing the stitch count.  Meaning I would knit two together and do a yarn over (K2tog, YO).

The eyelets aren’t that noticeable since the yarn is variegated and I used a garter stitch throughout the shawl.

These two white stitches scared me at first as I thought I dropped another stitch.

But as you can see, it’s just a part of the dye (or lack of it) in that one section.

I’ll just weave in the ends and call it done!
