Alice: a free lace knitting stitch pattern
This is a stitch pattern I designed at the same time as Lozenges, which means it is also not one of my encoded stitches. The two stitch patterns should coordinate well.
Why Alice? I spent a lot of time not being able to think of a descriptive name, and this morning the first name that popped into my head was Alice, so here we are.
- 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.
- Alice is a multiple of 10+1 stitches and 6 rows.
- I’ve 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.
