  • knitting with lace

    Can anyone help, I am looking for a pattern of a Christmas tree made by knitting with green wool and somehow knitting lace into it as you go along. I thought it was called knitted lace but, when I have tried the library websites and the internet in general all I keep getting is instructions on how to knit lace.

    Does anyone know what I mean and is there anyone who knows where I can get such a pattern from????

    I believe this craft originates in Australia.

    Any help very much appreciated.

    Is this the sort of thing you are looking for?

    They have several books here but in Australia.

    I would try your local haberdashery shop to see if you can get that type of lace in the UK but you may have to make up your own pattern.

          Thanks for all the help, At least I have something to be going on with now. Think I may have to find a pattern for a knitted tree and then incorporate the knitting with lace method on the website.

          Many thanks again all.

              This is a very old thread. You might like to reconsider leaving your email address in the public sector too.

                It`s called "Knitting In Lace". Have a look at google images and see if that is what you mean.
