Because of increases and decreases necessary for leaf shaping, rows have varying number of stitches. In rows 5 and 7 of the chart, stitches above the yarn overs are given as knit stitches. They should however be knitted as “knit through back loop” as indicated in the short discription for the pattern. Yarn overs knitted as “knit” would create lace holes!

Contest Winners

wtp-results-2008-octCongratulations to the winners of the October photo poll!
We asked you all to pick your favourite pictures from a shortlist of 10 swatches. The top 4 are:

  1. Large Lacy Cables
  2. Milanese Lace
  3. Chain Link Cables & Twin Leaf Lace

We’ve created some special new buttons based on the winning pictures. They’re in the buttons list to the right.

It really has been a fantastic few weeks, with volunteers contributing 50 new swatches since the beginning of October. There are many more stitch patterns being worked on as we speak, so do keep an eye out for new contributions!

A big thankyou to everyone for all their hard work.
