Continuing my love of lace knitting, here is the second part to my ten favourite patterns to encourage or inspire you on your knitting journey.

6 ~ Haruni by Emily Ross

This pattern sat at the top of my Ravelry queue for quite a few years. I eventually cast on, and then had to alter the end due to a confusing lack of yarn. Still, it was one of my favourite lace knits to date.

7 ~ Juliet’s Shawl by Samantha Woollard

I enjoyed making this shawl so much, that I made a second one!

8 ~ Aurora Shawl by Jon Dunn-Ballam

When I first cast this pattern off I wasn’t sure. But when I got it blocked out it transformed! I love the magic of blocking and is even more pleasing than casting off in many cases.

9 ~ Demelza by Vintage Purls

This pattern had a “different” look to it when it first came out compared to other designs released before it. One which to this day still stands out from the crowd. I adore this pattern as it portrays the fingering weight gradient colours from Gradiance Yarns amazingly well. The combination of smooth gradient and the open lace complement and enhance each other magnificently!

10 ~ High Desert by Rosemary (Romi) Hill

My most recently completed lace knitting pattern, and another one that I was encouraged to make through a swap. These time a secret swap. Secret as in, the person receiving this doesn’t know they are getting this from me and I don’t know what or who I’m getting something from in return. It is exciting waiting to find out!

So that’s my ten favourite knitting patterns made on my knitting journey. So far anyway. There are more gorgeous patterns to make than there is time in a lifetime.
