Basic Skills Necessary:

  • circular knitting
  • knit, purl, yarn over

Pattern Description:

Wisps of Smoke combines the heavy drape of silk, the lightness and fluidity of lace, and the sparkle of beads. The stitch patterning imparts the feeling of softly wafting smoke in a light breeze intermingled with fleeting touches of flames.

The style of this smoke ring features a wide scallop-edged yoke that decreases gradually into a tube. This makes a versatile accessory that can be worn as a draped neckline, or with the tube pulled over the head as an elegant hood-type head covering.

Pattern includes tips for using yarn that has been pre-strung and plied with beads so that every bead will show to fullest effect.

Instructions for the 4-round Lace Panel stitch pattern are provided in line-by-line written format. Perfect for a beginning lace knitter. And interesting enough for the more advanced lace knitter who appreciates a simple lace pattern that looks more complicated than it really is.
