lace jabot in progress December 2, 2011

Here is how I am constructing the knit lace jabot:

Using a fine weight white yarn, I knit 15 stitches in seed stitch (knit, purl) until work measured 3 inches long by 2 inches wide.  This is the base.

Using a 0 weight (lace) crochet thread rated for a 1.5 mm needle, pull the threads through spaces in the base across the bottom onto a 2.75 mm needle.  (14 holes=14 stitches on knitting needle) knit one row, then purl back.  Add a stitch in the hole between each stitch (27) purl back. For pattern: knit 4, Yarn Over, Knit 2 together until last 4 stitches, knit.  Next row, purl back.  Continue for1,5 inches, then a knit row purl row (repeat), then add a stitch between each stitch and continue in pattern.  Repeat sections until you get the length you want.

(I played with adding some movement to the lace by starting some with 5 knit stitches and others with 4.  Decided I didn’t really like it, so changed my technique for subsequent layers)

Then add the fancy border.  See the next post for that!

FYI- I used Aunt Lydia’s crochet thread size 10, 100% viscose from Bamboo.
