Antique Satin and Lace Ornament

from HeartStrings Knitting Patterns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Antique Satin and Lace Ornament
Antique Satin and Lace Ornament
Antique Satin and Lace Ornament
Antique Satin and Lace Ornament

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over

Pattern Description:

Fine lace knitted with unbleached linen and pearl seed beads against white satin suggests the look of an antique ornament. Makes a nice gift and remembrance for the holidays.

Use this pattern as written to decorate a commercial ornament ball, or just as a jumping-off point using your favorite lace edging.


Lace edging depth = 1.5" and 12 of the 6 row repeats = 7.5" after blocking and lightly stretched

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • To adjust for other sizes of ornament balls, keep in mind that more thread may be needed, and that the total number of beads you will need depends on the number of 6-row repeats it takes to encircle the ornament 3 beads are needed per 6-row repeat.


  • Approximately 12 yards of 35/2 unbleached linen thread (as pictured) or equivalent fine thread such as size 20 crochet thread, and in your choice of color.
  • Size 1 US (2.25 - 2.5 mm) knitting needles

You Will Also Need:

  • 36 size 10/0 white pearl seed beads (as pictured) or your choice of color
  • If you are using loose seed beads, some beeswax or paraffin will help in stringing the beads
  • 1 ornament ball, 7.5" circumference. A white satin ball (thread-wrapped styrofoam) was used in the model pictured. If you have trouble finding a satin ornament, you may need to substitute a more readily available glass ball
  • Small tapestry needle for joining and finishing ends
  • 3 or 4 fine gauge sewing pins (if using a satin ball) or clear craft glue (if using a glass ball)
