Estonian Lace Pattern-1 Repeat

Estonian Lace Pattern-1 Repeat

Since it’s difficult to visualize a lace pattern without seeing it in the light of day, here’s what one repeat (or 34 rows) of the center pattern look like. In this photo, you can see two repeats (as marked by the green stitch markers.) 

I love the way that the Brooklyn Handspun has a gradual color change when knitted up.

This lace looks a lot more complicated than it is. Since the 10 stitch repeat is repeated 8 times per row, you get the rhythm of the knitting. In addition, there are 4 rows that are repeated.
