Lily of the Valley

Contributed by Bitlie Booth. Pompano Beach. Florida

This pattern, related to Vine Lace Zigzag with popcorn-like knots added, is really upside down: the illusion of the "lily" is more realistic when the pattern is used in a garment made from the top down. But whether is it made to look truly flower-like or not, the pattern is an extremely pretty one with a dainty, ladylike air.

Panel of 27 sts.

Note: Make Knot (MK) as follows: (kl. pi, kl, pi. kl) all in the same st, making 5 sts from one; then pass the 4th, 3rd, 2nd, and 1st of the new sts separately over the last st made.
