Swags: a free lace knitting stitch pattern
Semiramis led in some productive directions for me; I’ve got two more free stitch patterns for you. One for this week, and one for next.
Here is Swags, which is an excerpt from Semiramis.
- This is a stitch pattern such as might be found in a stitch dictionary. This is not a pattern for a finished object. You will need to add selvedges or some other form of knitted stitches to either side.
- Swags is a multiple of 12+12 stitches and 12 rows.
- I have made a stitch map for it.
- Designers, please feel free to use it in your patterns. I’d like credit but won’t be offended if people don’t give it.
