Like most lace, this pattern needs vigorous blocking or it looks a bit of a mess. I could have stretched it even more if I’d used a looser cast on and bind off and hadn’t surrounded the swatch with a garter stitch border. Walker does recommend a very loose cast on and bind off in the book. It’s a garter-based lace and as such, is reversible and does not curl. No picture of the back this time. The book appears to show the pattern in a crochet cotton thread or lace-weight type of yarn so I thought I’d try it in worsted weighted weight. A very easy pattern but it helps to pay attention as picking up dropped stitches is a challenge.
