Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Summer 2001:
Canadian designer Debbie New began with the idea of using radically different yarn weights to achieve a transparent lacy look with a simple stitch. She calls the product scribble lace because it produces attractive wandering scribbly lines. When confined within an area of a knitted garment, such as the yoke, the lace is so flexible that it adapts to the shape and weight of the rest of the knitting.
