5 x 14 inches.
Several students requested that I turn the pattern into a scarf... and so I did.
In addition to being a beautiful and fun knitting project, this sampler is designed to be a learning tool for lace knitters, as an option for those who want to expand their lace skills but can’t make it to one of my classes in person.
It features a variety of lace stitch patterns, all challenging in different ways, to allow you to experiment and learn some new techniques.

The sampler ends with an applied edging. Although this project is best tackled by a knitter with lace experience, everything is explained in sufficient detail that even an adventurous newer knitter could take it on.

All pattern stitches are charted. (Some but not all have written instructions, also.) If you need a tutorial in chart reading, see this post on this blog.
Each individual pattern section includes detailed instructions and tips and tricks for handling the particular challenge of that pattern.
Using a single skein of sock yarn, it's a great way to grow your skills as a lace knitter, and have some fun along the way. The pattern has been thoroughly tested by both seasoned and newer lace knitters.
Available for $7.50 on Patternfish and Ravelry.
