Saturday Scraps – Snakes & Ladders

Treillage – Cable & Lace Knitting pattern

Iridaceae Lace Knitting Pattern

This design is dedicated to my Grandma who taught me to knit before I started school. She was one of those knitters that barely needed to look at a pattern, Aran jumpers were knitted in the blink of an eye, while watching TV at the same time! I deeply regret not tapping into my Grandma’s…

Whysteria Lace Knitting Pattern

I was in the middle of one of my ‘manics’ when I designed this pattern, and because it was precisely what I’d visualised, I was hysterically happy. So I thought I’d call the pattern Hysteria Lace, hmm, maybe. I bought some yarn last year because I liked the colour and it was half price, just one…

What Lace?

I was trying to take a pic of my latest design, but something got in the way! Of course he immediately assumed that all too familiar look of innocence! Doesn’t fool anyone!

Byzantine Lace

Sometimes I just draw random circles on graph paper and see what pattern, if any, emerges. Only problem is with random designing is naming the pattern afterwards, I’ve sat looking at this for days and nothing came to mind, it was nearly published as ‘The Nameless Lace’, until I settled on Byzantine Lace, marginally better than…

Augustine Lace Knitting Pattern

My first attempt at designing a lace pattern, it worked well on paper, didn’t translate so easily into knitting! After many hours of knitting numerous samples, and endless mugs of good strong tea, I finally completed the pattern.
