Sodium Chloride (NaCl) or salt crystals are very rigid and structured but each salt crystal is shaped different as the crystals compound on one another. This random growth in a rigid form creates beautiful salt structures that, like snowflakes, are unique. This pattern is a conceptual design that gives a blueprint for making a lacy ring using randomly generated eyelets. The gauge, yarn weight, needle size, and finished measurements are up to the knitter. Gauge: Knit a small swatch in stockinette stitch using your preferred yarn and needles. Note the gauge then measure your ring size. Use your gauge to calculate how many stitches to cast on to fit your ring size. In the examples shown, 20 stitches were cast on using lace weight with size 0 needle to make size 6 ring. The yarn is lace and cobweb weight in the examples. From left to right on the mandrel: Paper yarn, steel and silk, silk, cotton crochet thread. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round yarn over knit two together slip,slip, knit SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS sized to fit SUGGESTED YARN 10 yards of Lace weight COLORWAY white

I live and work in Salt Lake City yet I am woefully ignorant about the Great Salt Lake. I am attempting to learn more about the lake that has recently inspired me…and to knit that inspiration. I hope you like the patterns I am creating.
