Please note: This pattern has been adapted and knitted a few different ways, but nobody has knitted it as written yet. I believe it to be correct, but if you find any errors please notify me! I’m knitting through my own pair at present and should have the absolute final version out soon.

This pattern was designed for a good friend with a quick mind. The lace pattern was created by assigning numbers to the letters of her first name and using these to designate the location of the increases and decreases. My hope is that she, as someone with considerable knitting aptitude and quick intellect, will appreciate this (rather nerdy) technique.

The pattern features a chart and written instructions.
