Falling Further Into The Lace Pit

Buck Strong's picture


I just can't seem to stop knitting lace. This is my latest. I call it Leaf and Acorn Stole. This summer, I came across the acorn and leaf pattern. It's an edging pattern from 1891 and it begged me to make it into something fun. So, here is my take on it.

This is glorious!!!
Am not a huge fan of lace 'cause it often tends to look very "granny" - but this is stylish and amazing.

Any chance of you making us a full pattern for it?

Fantastic work. I have to admit, that lace hole has a slippery slope.

Thanks guys! It was

Thanks guys! It was interesting coming up with it. The first half of the stole was a pain to knit as I was designing/testing the pattern at the same time. By the time I got to the second half, it knit up pretty quickly. I'm already on my next lace adventure. The BF isn't to happy about it as his sweater is still hibernating.
