Carly Napkin

A narrow strip of knit lace is easily attached to the edge of fabric with strategically placed picked up stitches at the end of each repeat. This is a fantastic opportunity for knitting on fabric to elevate a bandana into a fancy headscarf, a gift wrap for a homemade cake or a set of beautiful lace edged napkins.

Ciara Scarf

A skinny scarf is a great introduction to learning a new and  interesting stitch pattern. The openwork makes a beautiful scarf which can also be worn as a headscarf or sash belt.

Arianna Earrings

The crescent-shaped motif and picot edging are deceptively simple to make. The picots are perfectly spaced for shaping the motif through the hoop earring and transforming the motifs into little stars.

Kimberly Necklace Cowl

This cowl is light and airy but the layers trap warmth nicely. It is a cinch to knit up with icord and pretty little flowers made from a clever combination technique of picots.

Nina Shawl

Drop stitches are a fabulous way to show off the texture of beautiful and uniquely constructed yarns. One of the greatest benefits of drop stitches is they grow a fabric exponentially, making this a quick project.

Khloe Bowl

If you can make a hat, you can make this visually stunning bowl. A completely hardened, lace knit stitch makes such an interesting home decor accessory. Filling it with contrasting colors really makes the lacework pop. Adding gold leaf to the rim would elevate the elegance or try spray painting the entire bowl with metallic paint.

Bridget Bracelet

Knitting with wire makes sophisticated jewelry. The drawplate is the secret to getting even and professional stitches. Use caution when choosing knitting needles for this project because wire can scratch softer finishes like wood and bamboo. I suggest using metal knitting needles.
