Karabella Lace Merino, 100% wool
3 skeins = 765 yds.
36 pattern repeats
Length: 60 inches
Each row starts with plain knitting for the first border, followed by the mesh stitch center, and finishing up with the second border which is knit in lace pattern stitches. Here you can see the 3 sections up close:
I enjoyed figuring out how the pattern worked, but after the first 10 repeats or so, working it became routine. I really had to push myself to keep going to the end.
Tres elegant, non? Makes me think about working this with other border patterns and a different center stitch. The possibilities are endless.
I have 2 more skeins of this yarn in navy blue and I keep ogling the remainder in the yarn shop. I'm tempted to make a pair of gloves out of it. It feels like it would make good gloves. Maybe after I finish the brown socks...
