uh oh

Around dinnertime yesterday, less than 48 hours from when I started it, I bound off for the sleeves of my Trellis. That's two and a half pattern repeats -- 51 rows -- 6,681 stitches -- so far. I was sooo proud of myself. Ha.

Then I noticed the mistake. It's a really, really big one.

I'm not going to go into the details here, because I feel like an idiot. It was one of those things where the whole time I was knitting, I thought, "hmmm, that's a little odd." But it wasn't until I stopped and took a good look at it that I realized what I had done. We're talking, if there were Darwin Awards for knitters, I'd be in the running.

To the untrained eye, not a huge deal. To me...well, I think I might be able to alter the pattern a bit to accommodate my glaring error. But I'm not sure that it wouldn't drive me completely crazy. I *so* should have waited for Jenny's spreadsheet.

Sooo...frog 5,563 stitches? Or keep going? Ack.

On second thought, I'll post a picture and the first person to identify the horrifying error will win a special prize!!

I'm not sure, but are those seed stitch panels not correct? It doesn't look like they're in the original. Is that cheating, looking at the pattern? ;)

Is one panel of the seed stitches too wide? And no looking at the pattern Meredith!

i'm going to say the seed stitched panels are backwards - though it looks fabulous anyway. . .

Though. . . next to the middle cable - to the left - there's what looks like about an inch of flat stitches that appears to not be on the other side of that cable - could just be the way it's laying though.

Getting warmer...I made a very specific mistake, and yes, looking at the pattern will definitely help you figure it out. ;)

Those odd panels of seed stitch ought to be on the outside edges of the sweater being button bands...you switched the left and right sides of the pattern!

(Although, I would say I had a little help coming up with that very specific answer...)

Despite the mistake (what ever it is) the pattern is beautiful - the color change really made a huge difference.

Color me blind, I don't see a specific faux pas...I see a 'bump' of some sort between a column and seed st panel...and I think it's a camera error.
Whatever the error...it looks great to me...Please, what is it?!
