Cloudy blanket – 2 knitting lace patterns

share...

A new project is ready for you! The cloudy blanket, ethereal and airy, chooses soft Mohair Royal yarn. Over the next three weeks we will post 6 different knitting lace patterns, which we will use to make it up.

mohair royal 2119

 

We start with the first 2 motifs, worked in light blue No. 2119. They form respectively delicate bells and well-defined zig zags. Each motif always measures about 15x15cm.
