Variations on a theme

MMario's picture

I took a wee basic lace pattern and played with it a bit....

it ended up as fifty patterns; 10 variations; each in 5 shapes.

There are a couple more I could have included easily without increasing the size of the basic pattern.

But I figured fifty was good enough to show the process.

This is part of my "Basic Starches" group of patterns - so called because I've been working up variations on simple patterns. In particular it's the "Potato" grouping....

Ditto that, I need to try at least one of these. Mario - so cool.

The tip up variety will work up the fastest; but I think the double down is the best proportioned.

Thanks, Mario. It took a bit but I can see it in my head. Very pretty.

After all the lace knitting I've done, I would think I could visualize the results of your graphics a bit better, but alas, I will have to take up needles and yarn to try out a few of these.

Thanks as always for your generosity MMario!

They are all variants on a diamond mesh formed of a double row of eyelets.

With different treatments for the centers of the diamonds, ranging from nothing; to a centered eyelet; to reverse stocking stitch; 1 x 1 rib; a square of purled stitches; and various small eyelet designs in the centers of the diamond.

hmmmm - I should do a potato salad with multiples of the centers....

*grin* but that will require larger charts!

Why is Mario so damn talented?

This (as most of my patterns) is just plugging part 'A" into tab "B"; not so much talent as pig-headed stubborness; as I **WILL** find a way to make that square peg fit the trangular hole. (you just need the correct sizes of pegs and holes.
