A Fine Lace Snack.
These flags give you instant gratification.
Larger than a swatch but way more fun to make. Learning several patterns that are well known in Shetland Lace designs.
You can knit your favorite more than once, you can knit them all!
Choose a fine smooth yarn, to show off the lace best. Then, decide if you want to make a gradient garland, a beautiful rainbow bunting or just a couple to satisfy your impulses.
there are 2 flags that will be slightly larger than the others. They have additional notes to make them closer to the same size as the others.
In the end, the flags are, to the eye, nearly all the same size.
You could use a fabric with lines as a template to block all flags to size.
The i-cord is made afterwards, using 4 strands of the same yarn held together, so the line is strong enough to use.
Yarn: approx. 1.5gr of 1/16NM Jamieson & Smith Shetland Supreme 1ply for each flag. 1 ball for 11 flags. (25gr/400m)
approx 14gr of 1/16NM Jamieson & Smith Shetland Supreme 1ply. Held quadruple for the i-cord.(approx 60y per strand)
Needle: 2mm / US0 for the flag, 2,75mm / US2 * to cast on and bind off and blocking.
Size: 7” x 7” or 17 x 17cm triangle
Also: ~2 stitch markers, T-pins, fine tapestry needle for weaving in ends, suitable detergent for washing, towel to press out
excess water, blocking location. Perhaps a bit of cloth with a grid to help block the triangle into proportions.
* I use 3 2,75mm / US2 needles for blocking. They are strong, straight and long enough to block each flag.
