In response to many requests, this is the project for knitters wanting an introduction to lace knitting* and its techniques.

In it I give detailed instructions for making a pretty Shetland lace wrap and it can be done in two versions:- entirely in a Candlelight pattern or as a wrap with a Bead and Zig-Zag Stripe panel with Candlelight borders.

The techniques explained are: lace casting on; gathering for corners; picking up stitches; how to follow knitting charts; attaching an edging; grafting and (finally) dressing the wrap.

The wrap is made using 3 x 25 gm balls of Merino Lace 2 ply wool - 375m per 25gm with UK 10; 3.25mm US 3 needle.
