This swatch is in preparation for a lace class I begin teaching next week. The class is based on the Beginning Lace Class written by Sharon Winsauer of Aurora Alpacas and features a lace sampler scarf. The first motif in the scarf is Cats Paw demonstrated in this swatch. Cats Paw is an excellent example of several basic lace principles:
- Each Yarn-Over (a decorative increase) is paired with a decrease
- The directional properties of the decreases (left-slanting, right-slanting, and center) are used as design features.
The super chunky yarn will hopefully make the features of this lace pattern clearly visible to my victims -- I mean students.
|Yarn:||Cascade's Magnum; 100% wool|

|Techniques:||YO; k2tog (right slanting decrease); skp (left slanting decrease); sl2 tog, k1, psso (center decrease)|

I feel like I'm in a time warp....
Aren't you a day behind?

I love the nine-patch squares. How do you do the lines of color that seem to overlap two or more other colors?
