Graffiti Wrap

Knit on the very biggest needles there are and using a simple eyelet stitch, the Graffiti Wrap is a great baby-steps introduction to lace knitting.

This lace stitch really gets the most mileage out of the yarn.  Try the same pattern with smaller yarn and needles, and you will get a more delicate lace.  I love using this lace pattern in just about everything!  (See the Lace Beret and Lacy Beret: Chunky Edition)
