Last call for September’s free membership pattern Lace-edged Doily

Just a reminder that today is the last day of the Free Download Offer Period for the Lace-edged Doily pattern. If you are reading this post later and missed the chance to get the pattern during the free offer period, it will still be available for purchase in the Bits of Lace section of the KnitHeartStrings Store. The purchased pattern will include an extra page that has tutorial sections for Crochet Provisional Cast On and Stockinette Kitchener Stitch Grafting in pdf format.

Have you checked out the October project for Bits of Lace yet? In celebration of Fall, it is a little oak leaf. This special edition pattern for KnitHeartStrings / Bits of Lace members is available for free download this month (October).

Click the Bits of Lace Oak Leaf pattern page under the Free Membership Pattern menu. Be sure you are logged in so that the system knows you are a privileged member and you will see the Download button under the price (rather than the Buy button) which means the pattern is free to you.

Believe it or not, this little oak leaf is a bit of lace edging. The design features an interesting lace edging construction built around an I-cord stem. You can make a pile of leaves in hardly anytime. Each takes just a bit of yarn. And the knitting goes fast once you get familiar with the pattern. I can’t wait to see what Fall colors everyone uses!

    I finally knit one of the patterns almost in the month it was posted. So far I’ve knit one oak leaf. It just took me a few hours but I’m distracted with the baseball series, too. **smile** For this first one, I used some faded crochet thread (size 5) from my Mom’s stash. Since it was thinner than the yarn called for, I used a US 1.5 (2 mm) needle and found it helpful to use a crochet hook from Mom’s stash to do the pukB (size B or 1 or 2.25 mm). I’m not sure I got all the pukB sts exactly where they should have been — I assume for the top lobe they should be all in the same place and then for the attached lobes, they work down the spine. I have some orange sock yarn and I think I’ll try another oak leaf now that I’ve had some practice. It’s soaking now and, since it’s cotton, probably will take a while to dry. I’ll get a photo up on my Ravelry project page over the weekend after it dries. (I linked to your Playing in the Leaves pattern since the oak leaf is included there. If you want a different link, let me know, please.)

      Oh Susan, I just had a visit to your Ravelry project page. Your pile of leaves has really grown! So lovely. I’m really impressed.

      Thank you for taking the time to link your project page and share all the pictures and info about the different yarns you used.

      If others have not yet seen Susan’s project page, here is the link to Autumn Oak Leaves.
