Lace Background Stitch

Comments: The suggested needle size for this yarn is 3.25mm (US 3), but I used the larger size to create a more lacy effect. Comparing the blocked swatches from the smaller and larger needles, however, their effect is the same. The difference is in the unblocked swatches, where the swatch from the smaller needdle is much less lacy. Unblocked, this pattern is very cushy and also quite attractive.

    Very nice. I like it. I’m thinking of making curtains from lace I’ve knit and wanting a simple lace pattern and this would do nicely.

      Wow, knitted curtains sounds like a lovely idea, but also quite an undertaking. Good luck with them!
