Hi everyone, I am trying to truly create a pattern for the first time. I have altered/ modified patterns before to suit my tastes and that's been a useful learning tool, but now I am wanting to create from the ground up. Here's what I have: - I know I want it to be a triangular shawl - I know what I want the pattern to look like, I have drawn it out. - I know which way I want it to work, which is from the bottom tip upwards ( not from the center neck outward, and not in vertical rows, and not one long chain and decreasing my way down) - it's going to be a series of staggered flowers, and in the in between rows, little staggered ch1 spaces The issue: I'm completely at a loss for how to execute this, I don't know how many stitches I need to have before starting the first flower, OR how to make sure the stitches in the in between row are lined up. I also don't know what it needs to be increased by every time. Basically, the numbers and the math of this is what's so hard. I am racking my brain. Is there a better way I could go about this? is there some sort of charting program people use to make sure stuff lines up? I attached my drawing. So both the flowers and the little chain 1 holes or spaces both create columns and the flowers increase by odd numbers and spaces increase by even. My issue is how to increase every row so that this works out. Thank you so so much, I am really thankful for any help.
