Lavori Artistici A Calza Nr. 5 – Fig. 35 – Oval Doily

Someone recently asked me for this pattern. I thought it might be a quick rechart. It was — because I completely forgot that I did it in 2011!

Before I spend too much time wondering what else could be done with the pattern, I think I’ll go back to getting uploaded at least some of the patterns from my previous post.

Hoping your Turkey Day was a happy one!

The simple repetitiveness of this pattern makes it great for talking while knitting. ;-) It might also work as a Christmas tree skirt that is slipped on from the bottom of the tree because it doesn’t have a seam. For purchase info Click Here.

These five patterns are from Mallins Handarbeitslehrbucher – Kunststricken Nr. 404.

Christmas decorations come to mind for some of these patterns.

Model 6511 – Triangular Doily

Model 6510 – Small Round Doily


Am too overwhelmed with other projects to make the shawl in the last photo, though I might make a purse or tote in lace weight hemp when I find the right one.

The French/Belgian magazine Femmes D’Aujourd’Hui (Woman of Today) was quite pleased to publish this pattern:

“Peut-on trouver un autre terme pour qualifier la beauté, la grâce et la finesse de ce ravissant ouvrage, réalisé en dentelle aux aiguilles? Sur un fond délicatement ajouré, de grosses fleurs exécutées en trés fin tricot forment une ronde tout autour du cercle central, en forme d’étoile et qui constitue, à lui seul, un joli modèle de napperon.

L’ouvrage mesure environ 1 m. 55 de diamètre, excellente dimension pour une nappe à thé ou une nappe de fête pour un petit diner intime, aux chandelles.”

Which translates to:

“Can we find another term to describe the beauty, grace and finesse of this beautiful book, made of needle lace? On a delicately openwork background, large flowers executed in very fine knit form a round all around the central circle, shaped like a star and which, on its own, constitutes a pretty model of a doily. The work measures approximately 1 m. 55 in diameter, excellent size for a tea tablecloth or party tablecloth for a small intimate dinner by candlelight.”

The construction is somewhat unusual for a Niebling in that the center is knitted from the outside in! But first the surrounding motifs are knitted and joined by knitting them together instead of sewing or grafting them. The center is then begun by picking up the 680 stitches from the inner edges of the joined motifs.

Hi All,

(Mistakenly put $50.00 instead of 50% in Discount Setup. Is now fixed.)

In order to receive discount, always use the “Add To Cart” button, even if purchasing only 1 item.

Note in the meantime the Stained Glass 1 pattern has turned into several items which I hope to be posting pictures of soon!

Happy Summer, and Knitting!

Along with minor corrections, mostly formatting. Will next be working on at least 2 more small squares that could be combined with this first one. Of course there are many other larger patterns still in the pipeline.

(Deciding to change the background color from black to brown ended up being more of a problem than anticipated due to the difference between what was on my camera screen and what appeared on my laptop screen when taking the photos at night. For the written form, the atypical page layout will also be a challenge.)

The modifications for the single medallion as well as the for the rectangle involve relatively unusual stitches: The first one is a two round nupp that might be a problem for novice dpn knitters and may be omitted or substituted with a bead. The second stitch is a right twist decrease one that is used to close the top of the leaves at the corners. This is an alternative to sk2p because its 2 resulting stitches are used to enclose the 2 yarnovers at the corners (which are actually not made by working 2 yarnovers but rather by working k1, k1-tbl in the running thread – see next sentence). The third stitch, k1-tbl in running thread, is used at the corners and to start the selvedge of the extensions. Finally there is a k5tog at the tip of the corner extensions and at the center of outer edge of the side extensions.

These stitches can be used to convert many circular doilies into squares, as will be demonstrated with the next medallion in the series. That medallion was a circular minimization of the Erika’s 601 baby blanket square. Picture to come.

Also to come are the numerous adaptations that can be made with the medallion. Won’t say yet because it’s so hard to choose!
