Knit Lace Pattern: Sophia Shrug by Betty Monroe

Pattern #1

Sophia Shrug by Betty Monroe

A simple rectangle, cleverly bordered and seamed, turns into the versatile lace knit shrug, the Sophia Shrug. A drapey elongated-stitch pattern folds easily into a shawl collar or stands up for warmth; while garter stitch turned on its side flows easily across shoulders, stretches to pin closed, and snaps back for wearing open.


Knitted Lace Blouse: Oriel Lace Blouse by Shirley Paden

Pattern #2

Oriel Lace Blouse by Shirley Paden

A gently fitted silhouette and belled sleeves are the perfect foil for an intricate allover lace pattern of interlocking arches. Shirley Paden used a slightly variegated silk ribbon to keep the top light and airy. The close-fitting collar closes up the back with a row of small buttons.


Knit Lace Pattern: Henley Perfected by Connie Chang Chinchio

Pattern #3

Henley Perfected by Connie Chang Chinchio

Lace knitters will lover this Henley. Connie combines a delicate lace pattern and stockinette in just the right quantities, in just the right yarn, for a beautifully versatile knitted lace pullover.

Shawl Lace Knitting: Icelandic Lace Shawl

Pattern #4

Icelandic Lace Shawl design by Sigrídur Halldórsdóttir adapted by Carol Rasmussen Noble

Called the Thórdís shawl, the original of this traditional Icelandic shawl is part of the Icelandic Craft Council's collection of textiles.

This lace knitting pattern tries to capture that spirit and tradition.

Lace Knitting Pattern: Tailored Scallops Cardigan by Pam Allen

Pattern #6

Tailored Scallops Cardigan by Pam Allen

In need of a beautiful knit cardigan? A longtime fan of the traditional feather and fan stitch pattern, Pam Allen worked it on a grand scale for this classic cardigan pattern. The structure of this knit cardigan creates decorative scallops that are preserved in the cast-on edges. To keep this sweater simple, Pam added very little shaping and worked the sleeve increases in panels of stockinette stitch that border the lace motif.


Knitted Lace Scarf Patterns: Penobscot Silk Lace Scarf design by Cyren Slegona

Pattern #7

Penobscot Silk Lace Scarf design by Cyren Slegona

For the summer 2006 staff project, then-editor of Interweave Knits Pam Allen chose an easy lace pattern and asked each staff member to create something different with it. Cyrene Slegona went for the knitted lace scarf patterns, designing this amazingly elegant, easy scarf alternating several lace repeats with blocks of stockinette stitch, in a silky yarn that is to die for.


Lace Hat Pattern: Lace Fountain Hat by Katie Himmelberg
