Lace can sometimes be intimidating for knitters, especially when we have spent so long as a newbie knitter trying to avoid holes - lace just seems a little counter intuitive! But this pattern is a beautiful example of a simple lace stitch panels that creates a lovely leafy look and all in an aran weight yarn so it will be a speedy knit. Excellent choice for a first try.
For this pattern we would recommend using King Cole Forest Aran which has some lovely flecky colourways. If you wanted to create a really special garment I would suggest trying our Mondial Zen Aran which has this amazing jewel tones and SPARKLES that would just look great with this stitch pattern.
You will also need 4.5mm and 5mm knitting needles.
