This ornate cross is knitted as a wide lace strip and then shaped using an interesting seamless construction. Instructions are provided for making with or without beads. The Lace Cross can be used as a bookmark, communion gift, mounted and framed, or a thoughtful Christian token of friendship.

  • 10" by 6.5"


  • 26 yards fingering weight (30 yards for beaded version)
  • Size US 2 (2.75 mm) suggested; even though this is knitted flat, you will probably want to use at least a 24" circular needle because of the large number of stitches in the wide strip
