Leaf and Berry Pattern Lace c1898

Wdie knitted lace with embossed leaf and bobble pattern

Size

You can use any needles and yarn to knit this edging, depending on your intended use.

The sample was knit in 4 ply cotton on 3.25mm needles and measures approximately 22cm deep when blocked.

Notes/Abbreviations

All double yarn overs are made into 2sts on the following row by working p1, k1 into them

k2tog = knit 2 together

SSK = Slip, slip, knit. SSK is an alternative way of working the old "slip 1, K1, pass slipped st over", which is a leftward slanting decrease. Slip the next st from left hand needle to right hand needle knitways. Slip next st the same way. Return both sts to left hand needle in their new twisted positions and knit the two stitches together.

yo = yarn over

WS = "wrong side", or the back of your work
