This is a translation of a lace knitting pattern in Danish found at

For the sake of clarity I have added a few additional instructions regarding the edge. Also, I have corrected what appeared to be 2 errors on rows 23 and 29.


k = knit
sl = slip
psso = pass slipped stitch over
tog = together
yo = yarn over
*-* = repeat enclosed instructions till end of round

All even rows are knit plain.

Cast on 9 stitches and distribute on on stocking/double pointed needles, knit 1 round.

Continue knitting by following either the written instructions or the chart below.

Row 1: *k1, yo*

Row 3: *k2, yo*

Row 5: *k3, yo*

Row 7: *k4, yo*

Row 9: *k5, yo*

Row 30-35: k

Work edge with a crochet hook. Where crochet terms differ, UK/US.

*3 stitches tog with a double/single crochet, chain 5*, repeat till end, endingwith a slip stitch in the first dc/sc.

If needed work a second round like this:

Slip stitch till middle of first loop, 1 double/single crochet in middle of loop,* chain 5, 1 dc/sc in next loop* repeat till end of round ending with 5 chain and a slip stitch in first dc/sc.
