This lace stitch comes from an 1867 pattern for a Shetland Shawl, forming the large centre square. In the original shawl, there is a wide 18 inch Shell or “Old Shale” border around it. I made this cloth with 5mm needles and about 35g of worsted weight cotton. To make it you need to be able to cast on, cast off, knit, knit 2 together, knit 3 together, yarn over. I crocheted a single crochet and then crab stitch round on mine to finish the edge, but you can also leave it just as knitted.
There will be a variety of patterns in this series using different stitch patterns and re-worked designs, both crocheted and knitted: soapsaver bag, slippers, a cushion, lace curtains, and more! They will be available singly then, later, as an e-book which you can buy at a discount if you have already purchased individual patterns.
