The Lace Rib Panel is a great way to get started if you haven’t knit lace before. The Lace Rib Panel is worked over 7 stitches and 4 rows – easy peasy, right? The video shows you step by step how to work the stitch which is really beautiful! (Oh! And, I apologize ahead of time. When you listen to the background, my little dog was snoring ?).
