  • Eyelet Lace

    Hello All,

    Can anyone explain to me, in simple terms, as I am a bit dense just now, how to knit in eyelet lace ? ( a video link would ideal)

    Many Thanks...

    I'd be interested too.

    I know some time back I asked about this, I call it knitted lace, as I wanted a pattern for a Christmas tree. I am still looking and still cant find a pattern.

        eyelet lace

        Hello Again,

        I don't think I have explained what I mean properly. I want to 'knit in' bought eyelet lace. I hope this makes more sense.

        Thanks again

          knit in eyelet lace

          What an interesting thought – like adding a strip of edging? Knitting it into your project on both sides of the edging? I can imagine crocheting into it but knitting…hmm… Would you just put the right hand needle through the eyelet space and then YO and pull back through? Then turn and go back…I just can’t envision it. So this is if the eyelet edging were perpendicular, so to speak, to the knitted rows? Or if it was the length of the stitches on the needle…but that would make the knitting item puckery…but you’d just insert the needle in each eye and YO and pull back through, all along the row – so, what is it for? Just embellishment? A way to do button holes?

          This sounds like some experimenting is in order….and some googling. I have never heard of this. I will have to get some eyelet edging and give it a whirl!

            eyelet lace

            well well!! I found some things through google - may or may not be what you are wanting...

            Knit in lace by starting from the left and placing the lace to the back of the work.
            bullet Insert the needle into the first stitch and through the first Eyelet hole in the Lace.
            bullet Loop yarn over the needle and complete the stitch.
            bullet Keeping the tension loose, repeat the procedure to the end of the row and cut the lace (do not cut the wool)

                  I know exactly what you mean let us know how you get on as I cant understand the instructions (probably because I haven't got the needles etc to hand)

                    eyelet lace

                    Oh dear...when i copied and pasted the instructions from the UK site, I did not realize...it says "bullet" in there several times and I think it was where they had some circles denoting a kind of list...so instead of the little circles, the pasted copy says "bullet" instead. Does that make any sense?

                        Eureka !!!!! if only all the instructions had first said "with wrong side facing" !!! and left meaning left of the garment, it was soooooooo easy and looks great.

                        Thank you all for your help....I will no doubt have a lacy phase now
