I am halfway thru an Aran motif afghan and just noticed in the first repetition of the pattern in one panel I messed up...all the rest of the panels are fine, just those six stitches that don't match the rest. I am not about to frog out over 60 rows to fix it (or literally start over). So, do I pretend I don't know or do I point it out with chagrin. It was probably going to go to one of the GKs or Greats but now I don't know. What would you do????
Just say it is a deliberate mistake because only Allah is perfect. Remember that Islamic artists always include one deliberate mistake in their works. The great Mosques always have at least one deliberate mistake in the patterns in the artwork.
