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.
