Cat’s Eye Lace
This week on Ask Me Monday, I show how to knit Cat’s Eye Lace. This stitch pattern is a great introduction to working two-sided lace. It’s not difficult and packs a lot of visual punch. It’ll prime you for success for that next-level lace in your knitting future!
Cat’s Eye Lace is the technique I used when designing the Eyes Wide Shawlette for the YarnYAY! Box #47. It’s beautiful for summer-y pieces like this one, wraps, tops, and more. Have fun!
