Here is Spritzer, the second pattern in the Boos for Beginners Collection. This collection consists of a series of six patterns designed for those wishing to try lace or for those not overly confident using finer yarns, however each pattern will still be a very useful addition to any wardrobe - whether beginner or not!

Lace knitting is not scary; it is merely knitting with increases and decreases that create a pattern of holes in your fabric. Often lace is knit with a finer yarn but not tiny needles. This creates a light and airy fabric that, once blocked, looks intricate and pretty. It is so much easier than you think it will be! Though this is a collection aimed at those beginning lace knitting it is not a knitting course, tutorial or knitting encyclopedia.

Buying the Collection will afford a significant saving - you will be saving at least £7.50 compared to buying the patterns individually and it should be pointed out that at least one of the patterns will be strictly exclusive to the collection and will never be offered as an individual pattern or patterns. Patterns will be added to the Collection as they become available and all updates will be sent automatically.

Spritzer is more detailed than the first shawl of the collection and there will be some new stitches to learn but nothing challenging or scary. By the end of this Collection you will be able to tackle any of the Boo Patterns without a moment’s hesitation!

For knitters with more experience this pattern is simple but not boring. Perfect for holiday or television knitting and the ideal pattern to persuade a non-knitting friend that they really can do it! Suitable for many, many different yarns; you could knit one for each day of the week!

You will also need: Stitch Markers (one that is different to mark the beginning of your rows), Needle (for weaving in ends), Blocking Pins and Mats, just under 500 Miyuki Size 5 Triangular Beads for the smallest size (I made mine in Solstice Yarns Changeling), just under 700 for the lace version (or if you repeat Chart Two five times), and a 1mm cro-tat hook to apply your beads (or dental floss, 0.6mm crochet hook, fleegle beader).

You will find it useful to print your pattern on a colour printer or colour your bead placement in coloured pencils.

This pattern is charted and has full written instructions.
