Yarn(s) to be held doubled.
Shown in the sun, and in the shade.

Slipping 1st st every row purlwise with yarn in front, then k1. I like the slipped st edge better.

Part 4: “Ridges”
Row 2 (ws): p1, k1 (instead of purling)
This gives a small 2-row seed stitch “ridge”.
Repeating Part 4, rows 1-4 six times (instead of five)

Part 6: “Lattice Lace”
Worked three times total (instead of two)

Part 7: “Eyelets with no Increases”

Instead, I worked 1 knit row, then 2 rows of k1, p1 seed stitch.

Ended with a lace pattern from Knitted Lace of Estonia, page 148, (Lace Edge Pattern 5). It is a multiple of 10 + 11 which works out exactly to the number of sts on the needle, still keeping the two sts on each end as the edging. Working from row 2 (ws) knit. Through row 24.
Also added some pearlized seed beads (#6) to the lace section.

Bind Off in Knit from WS, using the YO Bind Off method.
