Again, more tidbits on stitch marker use. This is a shawl border of over 300 stitches. It has a repeat pattern of 24 stitches which is made up of 2 12 stitch patterns. HELP!! Stitch markers to the rescue.
Sooo, each repeat is it’s own color. Thank goodness I have so many colors of stitch markers. LOVING those colored ring markers I got on Amazon. Then I added a matching colored pin to the second marker ring to differentiate between the first half of the pattern and the second half. In the picture above a gold ring marks the start of a new repeat. The gold ring with a gold pin marks the second half of the repeat. To the right you can see another repeat that used pink ring markers and a pink pin.
Course that’s not all on this pattern!! It’s hard to see in the photo but I needed a different type of marker to identify the mid point of the shawl border. I’m using a beautiful marker that my sister gave me for Christmas. The big blue ring markers show where stitches are being added around the mid point and aren’t part of the 24 stitch repeats (which was causing major errors till I figured this out.😡)
