This is a great pattern for anyone interested in trying their hand at lace knitting. The three different lace patterns are all worked over fewer than 20 stitches. These quick to knit rows are nice for quickly seeing, and understanding, your lace knitting.

The lace patterns are presented in both text and chart form. If you're new to lace knitting we highly recommend starting with the text instructions then, after a few row repeats, switching to the charted instructions. Try placing a post-it note, or even better, a strip of low-tack highlighter tape, right above the row you are about to knit. Now you'll be able to see, stitch by stitch, what you need to do next, as well as what kind of knitting should be directly under those stitches.
