New Pattern: Simple Elegance

I decided that since this is a big move for me I would celebrate by giving you guys a new pattern....;-)

I have had lots of questions about the wedding shawls that I was making for a friend of mine so i figured now would be a good time to share one of them with you...

This is a pretty easy...so if you are new at lace consider this since its only 16 row repeat....I know 16 sounds long but then every other row is purl so its really only 8...:-)

Okay are you all ready...Then Lets Begin:

Simple Elegance

(Close Up)

What you need:

Yarn: I used 2 skiens of Alpaca Cloud from Knit Picks in the Sunlight Heather color way, but any lace weight will work.

Needles 5 us or 3.75 mm

Guage isn't a big thing here since you can block it out pretty easily...

NOTE: there is a 3 stitch garter stitch border that IS NOT wrote out, so be sure you knit the beginning and the ending 3 stitches each row

Cast on: 97

Work 5 rows in garter stitch.

Row 1: K1, *k2tog, K4, yo, K1, yo, ssk, K1; repeat from * till end of row

Row 2 and every other even row: Purl

Row 3: K1,* K2tog, K3, (yo,K1) twice, ssk, K1, repeat from * till end of row

Row 5: K1, *K2tog, K2, yo, K1, yo, K2, ssk, K1 repeat from * till end of row

Row 7: K1, *K2tog, (K1, yo) twice, K3, ssk, K1 repeat from * till end of row

Row 9: K1, *K2tog, yo, K1, yo, K4, ssk, K1 repeat from * till end of row

Row 11: K1, *K2tog, (K1, yo) twice, K3, ssk, K1 repeat from * till end of row

Row 13: K1, *K2tog, K2, yo, K1, yo, K2, ssk, K1 repeat from * till end of row

Row 15: K1, *K2got, K3, (yo,k1) twice, ssk, K1 repeat from * till end of row

Row 16: Purl

and repeat these 16 rows....

And if you have any questions feel free to email me ;-)


And if you like this pattern all I ask is that you donate a few dollars to Aids Life Cycle. This link will be updated every year with my new cycling number so when ever you find this pattern you will be able to donate to the current ride! I myself have been fight HIV/AIDS for roughly 5 years but luckily I have never had to use any services. But others aren't that lucky...So anything you can give would be awesome! thanks.


I made it in one peice

I made it... I'mhere in San Fran and loving all of it. I was sooo freaked that I was actaully getting on a plane to com e out here but when i got off the plane and see Chave I knew that this was the right choice, if anything i can move somewhere else. But I'm working at my new store, I picked up a job doing 2 peoples books once a week...and Im knitting like a fool. Chave wants me to start selling my stuff round the city. So we are thinking up fun ideas and stuff....

funny story...

I was setting outside of our apt sipping coffee on the front steps and the car backs out of the garage and sees me fixing/reappying my makeup and she gets out and was like "Hey!"... I looked up to see what she wanted and the next words out of her mouth made me choke on the Soy Latte I was trying to sip..."I love the fact that you are doing your make up here in the street corner! I am a makeup whore *removes her sunglasses* See, I put on fake lashes just so i can get lunch...Just wanted to say that you make me happy...Lata!"

yea...thats been my week pretty much since i got here lol
