I am only a newbie (only knitted a basic purl and knit scarf) and now just started a cable knit jumper. But have down loaded this for when I have learnt more.

  1. As one who is easily bored with long stretches of stockinette, I find knitting lace great fun and look forward to tackling this delightful pattern.  For those who haven't tried knitting lace before, you might consider knitting only a border of lace which you can hand sew to a piece of fabric for use as a baby blanket or as a shawl.  Years ago, as a gift for my sister's-in-law baby, I bought a lovely piece of soft woolen fabric, hemmed it by hand and then used baby-weight wool to knit a band of lace to add as a border.  As I recall, the lace pattern (straight on one side, pointed on the other) repeated its pattern about every 8 to 12 rows.  Thus I learned the fundamentals of lace knitting and (since I probably used size 6 or 8 needles) soon had a long band of lace which I hand stitched onto the fabric's hemmed edges.  I was so pleased with the results that I couldn't part with the blanket!  It's probably just as well, as my sister-in-law probably would have added it to her load of hot-water wash and so turned it to felt.  I sent her something much more practical and soon thereafter used my lace-trimmed baby blanket to bring my 2nd beautiful son home from the hospital.
  2. Although it's a bit more complex, another good tutorial for learning to knit lace is Interweave's free pattern, Vine Lace Baby Hat.  A couple of years ago, I had fun making it for my 2nd son's 3rd child--a beautiful infant daughter.

Wow! Many thanks for providing such a beautiful pattern at no cost.  Probably well above my skill level, but tempting, anyway.
