LACY LOVELINESS

Lace samplers

These samplers can be used in many ways as they are repeatable in width and height. Varying your yarn thickness and needle size, you can knit lace to suit just about anything you’d like to add it to. Lace uses basic stitches, increases and decreases. These have symbols on a chart or abbreviations in the written instructions.

There are a few tricks as well as finishing techniques that complete the lace knitting piece.
