Inspiration: Funky and modern, this geometric lace is an openwork pattern with a hip feel. Patches of garter stitch combined with simple diagonal eyelets create a pattern that waves slightly, but doesn’t curl much.
Tip: There are purl stitches and knit stitches worked on the wrong side rows, which makes for a combination of garter stitch and stockinette.
