I knew this was going too smoothly.

I am currently 4 1/2 inches from cast on for Flax and 16 rows from the collar ribbing.

I’m going to have to rip 15 of those rows out.

See this garter panel? I misunderstood the instructions. It’s supposed to be sixteen stitches wide. It doesn’t matter how many times you increase in that section- the garter part should stay sixteen stitches wide. It’s currently 30 stitches wide. D’oh!

And I’m not doing that ribbing again. (Non-pattern ribbing is the bane of my existence.)  So. I’m going to need to insert a lifeline into that first row after the ribbing, and rip back to it.

And it was going so well.
