Light and Lacy/Silver Project

I’ve been playing with a lace pattern for the Ravelry nalbinding group’s Light and Lacy challenge and my local fiber fair’s “Silver” craft along.  Third try is the best so far.

The base row is Oslo. Then in every other stitch I do button hole stitch. then a row of regular button hole stitch. All stitches are tightened around my needle. When I do another Oslo stitch row, I pick up one button hole stitch and do an Olso stitch, then I do one Oslo stitch unattached to the previous row.

I increased on the Oslo stitch row and the first button hole stitch row at the edges, which gave about a 60 degree triangle. I wanted about 90 degrees for a shawl, so maybe I should have increased every row and stopped thinking like a knitter! So this will be a pointy edged scarf, instead of a shawl.

The piece is curling A LOT and I have to untwist my yarn on my needle often. I think I’m going to have to block this. Though, most nalbound items, I don’t block.

Anyhoo – hopefully that’s enough info to play with or inspire you to try your own nalbinding lace!
