Knitted Lace in Oak Leaf and Acorn Pattern

Antique knitted lace in acorn and oak leaf design

from Needlecraft Magazine, October 1925

This pattern is an adaptation by Mrs G.H. Kimball, of Leaf and Acorn Lace. This version has been corrected, updated into modern knitting langauge and charted by Sarah Bradberry, 2016. Please note: There is a small error in my knitted sample on the tiny leaf at the zig zag edge. This has been fixed in the pattern below.
