Smocking LaceFor knitting Economical Coat Hangers
DESIGNS AND PATTERNS WERE DEVELOPED FOR THE WORLD OF LACE
BY JOYCE NEEDHAM, AND THE LADIES CREDITED ON THE PATTERNS.
Smocking lace was developed by The World of Lace to help the ladies that you see on the cake stands at fetes and hospitals who devote their time to raising funds for charities, schools and churches. This economical lace has been copied by our competitors, and it raised a smile when a customer bought the lace from them and they told her to contact us for the pattern.
If you have not tried the Smocking Lace, here are a few instructions to get you going.
The laces are made with two lots of holes, one at the top and the other at the bottom. You knit each row of eyelets in turn, the bottom row first, then 5 rows without lace and on the next lace row on the pattern, knit into the top row of holes. The lace/satin/spots in the centre scrunch up and look vaguely like smocking, hence the name! Having knitted 2 lace rows but only used 1 piece of lace the coathanger will take far less lace to complete, so it is ideal for those who knit for charity, fete’s etc., Give it a try, you will find that if you use the no 1 smocking lace pattern (on the free patterns page) you will get at least three coathangers from each five metre bundle.
