  • 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.

      I do tatting with wool, tatting is sometimes called shuttle lace, I have seen some patterns for christmas trees on the tatting sites

          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.
              God helps them that help themselves.

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