HOW TO KNIT WITH LACE

The technique of knitting the lace in with your wool was developed by Joyce Needham in 1989 and has been popular since then in Australia and New Zealand. With the help of the internet it has spread to the rest of the world. Below is a description of the way that the lace is knitted in to help those that have not tried it

 

These instructions have been downloaded from our 2014 Coat Hanger Pattern Book which contains the patterns for 14 different coat hangers. Price $8.00. If there is anything that you find difficult to understand contact Joyce on 07-55-305-645 ( Australia) or Email at info@worldoflace.com.au

The phrase "Knitting with Lace" is a bit misleading as rather than knit using the lace instead of wool you still use the wool, however, you knit the Lace in with the wool.
These patterns are very simple patterns, and easy to do. The wire coat hanger also has the benefit of using up those dry cleaners coat hangers that seem to breed in the wardrobe. It turns them into a useful item and stops the way that they put a line in the trousers or slacks that you hang on them.

Before you start, turn under one hole of the lace and count the number of holes that you require for the first row of lace. Mark with a pin. Count the holes on the other side of the lace.
