Started Tivoli ...

I was disappointed to see the old Tivoli patterns were gone (I think I have a printout, though) since I am making Tivoli and not Picovoli. Oh well. Has anyone else been confused by this part of the directions:

"Continue making increase rounds according to finished bust size:
28" / 71cm (32" / 81cm): work increase round every other round, 10 (12) more times, ending with an even round; 208 (240) sts – 60 (68) sts for front and back, 44 (52) sts for sleeves. 36" / 91cm (40" / 101.5cm, 44" / 112cm, 48" / 122cm): *work 1 round even, work 2 inc rounds; rep from * 8 (10, 11, 13) times. 36" / 91cm and 44" / 112cm sizes only: work 1 round even, then 1 additional increase round. All sizes: work 1 round even; 284 (308, 336, 364) sts on needle – 78 (84, 90, 98) sts for front and back, 64 (70, 78, 84) sts for sleeves."

I would be making the 36" size.

It may just be poor formatting, but I have been just winging it. I got gauge with Endless Summer Lara from but I'm questionable that it will actually work out. Wish me good luck!

Hi Elspeth,

If you follow the "straight" directions of the Picovoli, you will bet yourself a Tivoli :). Unless you had already started with a Tivoli pattern, and now it's gone? In which case, e-mail me.

It is poor formatting, in my opinion - it's missing a critical blank line between the two sets of instructions! However, that's out of my control. For a 36" size:

36" / 91cm - *work 1 round even, work 2 inc rounds; rep from * 8 times. Work 1 round even, then 1 additional increase round. Work 1 round even. 284 sts on needle – 78 sts for front and back, 64 sts for sleeves.

I hope this helps!

My interpretation of it for the 36" size is:

*work 1 round even, work 2 inc rounds. Repeat from * 8 times. After that work 1 round even, 1 inc round, and one last 1 round even.

I read too quickly and got further confused--thought each size had its own line. Nevermind!

Hi Kathy,

Thanks! That's what I thought (8 repetitions) so I'm going along fine so far!
