On the fifth day of Knitmas…

Day Five – Tumbleweed Lace

This beautiful lace pattern was borrowed from Rose Beck’s Tumbleweed sweater from issue ten : texas. The delicate design was used at the hem of the sweater as a lovely accent, and it’s stacked here to create a completely different look. If you love it and are working with full skeins of yarn, keep knitting more repeats! If you find yourself struggling with the lace, skip it and work a different stitch pattern with C4. 

Note: Directions inside of brackets [ ] are also shown in the chart.

Hint: place marker after each repeat in Row 1 to make the chart easier to follow.
