    Description

    I discovered that this lovely Estonian lace pattern is a great match for self-patterning yarns. With the Peacock stitch and the yarn, the scalloped stripes just pop out. It makes for a beautiful look. This is a simple introduction to lace knitting and it’s sized from preemies to 4-yr-olds so you’re sure to find someone for whom you can knit it.

    Skills required: increases/decreases, picking up stitches, buttonholes, knowledge of sweater construction, seaming, sewing on buttons

    Gauge: 30 sts and 42 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch with larger needles
