It’s something I think every knitter aspires to, yet some are too afraid of failure to give it a try. I’ll admit that knitting lace can be tricky sometimes, but it is ALWAYS beautiful. You can create some amazing, unique masterpieces once you get the hang of a few standard techniques that are much easier than they first appear to be!
My Artemis Beanie design, inspired by the goddess of nature herself, features a lovely leaf lace that I just can’t take my eyes off of. While the lace in this pattern is beautiful, it’s also quite practical! The lightweight, breathable fabric ensures that you stay cool no matter the weather, so it’s perfect to wear while enjoying the great outdoors. I hope this pattern helps to demystify lace knitting for you beginners out there, and that those of you who are more advanced will enjoy a quick and easy knit. :)
The yarn I chose for this project is Stonehedge Fibers’ Shepherd’s Wool, available from Fairlight Fibers. Lace is traditionally knit in a thin, delicate yarn. However, that can be extremely time consuming and difficult to see, so I opted for a worsted weight yarn. This lovely merino wool is unbelievably soft and squishy, and it’s famous for helping to regulate body temperature: merino keeps you cool when it’s hot outside and warm when it’s freezing! Another reason I love it is that it is very affordable, plus there are lots of gorgeous colors to choose from. You really can’t go wrong with Shepherd’s Wool!
