ackie brings you 3 new lace designs. The first is a gem of a stole the Bi-directional Lace Strips, the narrow lace strips are joined as the panels are knit, thus eliminating the need for sewing. There are three sets of strips, each in a different color. The undulating edges around the stole and between the strips add movement and interest to this eye-catching piece.
This stole is created by using two unusual features, the panels are worked in opposite direction of the panel they're joined to, thus creating vertical symmetry of the tear-drop pendant motifs across the six adjoining panels and a lengthwise separation is used to form two narrower sections of three strips each that give variety to how the stole can be worn. Its knit on size US 7 (4.5mm) needles.
And her Buffalo Guys and Gals Dickey is also quick and easy-to-knit and suitable for both men and women. Using far less yardage than an entire sweater, you can still get the look of a sweater in a luxury fiber by wearing this dickey under an open-collared, V or crew neck shirt.
