- Worked stockinette section instead of the budding lace until I had a total of 103 sts (I only worked increases on the RS rows)
-You can make this section any stitch count you want. Just keep in mind the repeat for Lily of the Valley border is 10 stitches. You will want a stitch count in the stockinette section that will work with the Lilly of the Valley section.
I skipped Row 1 & 2 of the Lilly of the Valley Border, which left me with 2 extra stitches on each side of the markers when working row 3. I simply k2tog twice on each side in an inconspicuous spot.
Worked one full repeat of the Lilly of the Valley Border (rows 3-22), and then worked rows 3-11 once more.
Worked the entire Lace Border
Worked the entire Scalloped Edging
Bound off using the Elastic Bind Off
K1, (k1, transfer 2 sts back to left needle and k2tog through the back loops)
Here's a picture that shows off the details better:

The Giant's Causeway is an area of about 40,000 basalt columns. They are the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. The tops of these columns form stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are a hexagon, but there are others with a different number of sides.
