I thought it was time to write an update on the Dress of Many Patterns and share my own lace sampler swatch in progress.
The pattern comes from PieceWork and is a recreation of a piece in a knitted lace sampler book featured in the magazine in 2016.
The first row of the eight-row repeat staggers the diagonal of eyelets formed; the pattern is worked in multiples of five stitches and an eight-row repeat. The stitch count remains the same – five stitches per repeat – for each repeat of the pattern throughout.
If you’re interesting in trying it yourself, the pattern is below.
Gauge: one 5-st repeat and 8 rows = 3/4 inch wide and 1/2 inch tall.
