Skill Level: Requires both Knit and Crochet Skills.
Knit: Easy - Stocking Stitch: includes instructions for knitting flat (Knit and Purl) or knitting in the round (Knit only)
Crochet - Easy: Although this lace looks incredibly intricate, it is actually quite simple. The charts and written instructions provide clear, easy to follow directions.
