Trellis Framed Leaf Pattern

Like its parent the Openwork Leaf Pattern, this lace is basically a simple construction of only six pattern rows. It is often presented in an unnecessarily complex form. The author has seen it given in 40 rows, with decreases awkwardly juggled from side to side among the edge stitches! Often, too, the trellis inserted between the leaf motifs is improperly paired. Since it is an exquisite pattern, very popular among lace knitters, the reader is well advised to use it as given here. Sometimes it is called Medallion Leaf Pattern.
