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. Construction: Knitted flat and formed into a cross as stitches are bound off Special Techniques: Beaded cast on Center double decrease bind off BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, yarn over for beaded version: long tail cast on, stringing beads GAUGE 5.5 stitches per inch over garter stitch blocked (gauge is not critical although it could affect size and amount of yarn used) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 10" by 6.5"

Recommended with this pattern

  • 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
  • For Beaded Version (optional): 160 size 8/0 (3 mm diameter) beads, approximately 4 g + Needle for stringing beads
