DIRECTIONS

Loosely cast on 34 stitches. Work four rows in garter stitch (knit every row). Begin working lace pattern, following the written instructions or the chart below. Complete 20-25 repeats of the stitch pattern, ending with Row 15. Work four rows in garter stitch and loosely bind off.
Note: Every row begins and ends with a border of 3 knit stitches. These border stitches are NOT shown in the chart, but are included in the written instructions. You may want to place a stitch marker after the first 3 knit (border) stitches on each row and before the last 3 knit (border) stitches, to distinguish them from the lace pattern stitches.
