Further notes
For those of you who aren’t familiar with chart reading, please do read the very practical guides written by Eunny Jang: Majoring in Lace Part ii and Part iii.

To highlight:

  1. The lace chart in this pattern is reading from the right side.
  2. The blank square represents k on the right side (odd number rows) and p on the wrong side (even number rows). This will form the stockinette ground for the central pattern.
  3. However, in the central spiderweb pattern, it does not matter what directions your stitches are slanting. K2tog is used in every row.
