Last October my LYS, Stitches with Style, had a basic Lace Knitting Workshop with Franklin Habit.
At that time he gave copies of his pattern Parterrre Brouderie which I started knitting and decided it would make a good christmas present for my niece, Lucia. It was the only knitted present that I gave this year, so I hope she likes it. If not I hope my sister-in-law takes it and uses it instead. It came out very nicely, even if I say so myself.
Pattern: Parterre Broderie with added nupps
Size: ~5 ft long
Needles: US 3 / 3.25 mm
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Helen’s Lace Solid in Pink
Started: 10 October 2009 at Franklin’s workshop at Stitches with Style
Finished: 19 December 2009
I added the nupps because we were practicing them in class, so I decided they could stay. They do not show up very well in this yarn but are between the straight lines of pattern in the center.
I found this pattern very easy to remember. So it was not too challenging that I could not knit it when I was tired like complicated lace patterns and not too easy that it got boring.
