Knit & Crochet Lace Panels
This week on Ask Me Monday, I show how to knit & crochet lace panels. Whether you want to use them as-is, to make things like bookmakers and belts, use multiples to make hanging planters (see below), or incorporate them into larger projects, these lace panels are a great addition to your stitch arsenal!
