Loom Knit Lace Afghan

by Kristen Mangus

Cozy and beautiful!  This Loom Knit Lace Afghan is beautiful enough to leave on display and warm enough to keep off the chill of winter.  The lacy stockinette diamonds create a beautiful, eye-catching design.

This pattern was converted from the Winter Lace Afghan needle knit pattern by Leisure Arts.

MEASUREMENTS

NOTES

Cast on from left to right to ensure that you are able to start the lace chart correctly.  You should begin Row 1 of the lace section in the bottom right-hand corner of the chart. Both reading the chart and knitting the row from right to left.  This will make it easier for you to follow the chart.

Chart is strictly the lace stitch pattern. Work the seed stitch border first, then the 1st knit stitch (serves at the +1 for the multiple), then work lace stitch pattern between the black border.  This border frames the repeated main stitch pattern. Work the lace stitch pattern until border stitches only remain and work those in border.
