Kendall Lace

MMario's picture

I derived this pattern from a "kendel" lace pattern in a late 1800's pattern book. The only thing I've used it for so far has been the square center of a psuedo-shetland shawl I knit a few years back as a wedding gift (Kendall being the male half of the couple) - but it would make for a nice scarf or stole in my opinion.

word document attached - pdf waiting on photo of a sample; since my only "sample" is in Maine.

or maybe not - it isn't allowing me to upload. oh well..Darrel?

so here's the text.

Multiple of 10 plus 5 (+ border stitches if desired) - Slip stitch is knit if border added.

1) S1, *N, O, K, O, N, k3, SKP, O,; repeat until 4 stitches left, N, O, k2

2) and all return rows, S1, *N,O, K, p7; repeat until 4 stitches left, N, O, k2

3) S1, *N, O, k2, O, N, k1, skp, O, k1; repeat until 4 stitches left, N, O, k2

5) S1, * N, O, k3, O, A, O, k2; repeat until 4 stitches left, N, O, k2

7) S1, * N, O, k1, skp, O, k3, O, N; repeat until 4 stitches left, N, O, k2

I actually learned to knit

I actually learned to knit lace from a book printed in 1890-something....so I tend to use some pretty outdated terminology.
