The techniques included within this pattern include simple increases and decreases for working lace. This includes K2tog, K2tog tbl, K3 tog tbl, and YO. This is a great pattern for an adventurous beginner that is wanting to try lace knitting for the first time.

If you’ve never worked lace before but are familiar with increasing or decreasing stitches (i.e. K2tog and YO), you already know how to work lace, so don’t let that term scare you. Plus, I like to say that all of knitting, regardless of the stitches, is the same: you just follow one instruction at a time, and (almost) everything is just a version of a knit or a purl.

All of my patterns include clear, step-by-step instructions and linked video technique tutorials that walk you through the pattern with confidence. I am also available for pattern support if you have questions.
