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.

Tips:

  • When you reach the end of the row, remember to cut off the lace leaving enough to turn back and knit into two lace holes to give a neat finish.
  • The lace always has to remain on the outside of the work.

The Knitting with Lace technique can be applied to many other projects, a few of which are pictured below.

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.

We hope that you enjoy these patterns, and remember that the laces that are featured can be obtained from us by mail order.

These instructions have been taken from our 2014 Coat Hanger Pattern Book which contains the patterns for 14 different coat hangers. Price $8:00.
