Lace 102 Sampler
This sampler is designed to be a learning tool for lace knitters, as an option for those who want to expand their skills but can’t make it to one of my classes in person.
It features a variety of lace stitch patterns, all challenging in different ways, to allow you to experiment and learn some new techniques.
I’ve used some all-over patterns, and some single lace motifs worked on a plain background; I’ve used some lace with a stocking stitch ground (that is, with purl WS), some with a garter stitch ground (with knit WS); there are patterns worked on one side only, and patterns worked on both sides. There are patterns with variable numbers of stitches, and a pattern that featured delayed decreases. I’ve used some tricky and unusual stitches like s2kpo and p2tog tbl. And there are the often-feared Estonian nupps.
The sampler ends with an applied edging.
Charts and written instructions are provided for all pattern stitches. And each individual pattern section includes detailed instructions on how to work it, and key tricks for handling the particular challenge of that pattern.
