Starlight Lace

Stitches Knitting Patrons
Starlight Lace

This deceptively simple-looking lace is very cleverly made. Two different kinds of double decrease on Rows 6 and 14 sharply reduce the number of stitches, thus widening the motifs at these points to enhance the starlike shapes in the openwork. The original number of stitches is restored on Rows 8 and 16. Notice, also, the crossed knit stitches, which help to sharpen the pattern. It is a very fine lace indeed, extremely delicate and graceful.

Multiple of 6 sts plus 5.
