May’s project in the BOBBOL 2013 Series
BOBBOL 2013 is the nickname for Bits of Beads/Bits of Lace, and expands the popular Bits of Lace 2012 Series with additional types of small lace projects and the addition of projects for building skills in beading.
For May, we knitted Pinwheel Flower Doily. Bring a little bit of knitting art into your kitchen, bath, or dining entertainment. Make this practical, small piece of flower-inspired “art” that you can use as a facecloth, tabletop coaster/doily, or stylish kitchen dishcloth.
This month’s project highlights techniques for
- an easy (cheating?) center start for double point needles
- the crochet chain bind off frequently used for lace doilies
In an extra bonus Tips & Techniques article later in the month, I also provide instructions for the knitted version of the crochet chain bind off.
If you missed the knit-along for Pinwheel Flower, you can purchase the pattern now and still take advantage of free support articles for making this project.
Knit, learn, and enjoy the making!
