crochet lace with noro yarn
Noro is such a knitters yarn isn't it, I've always wanted to try it with crochet and so for this tutorial I try out a pretty triangle lace stitch. It's quite an easy one, with a four row repeat and looks fabulous, would be great for a pretty blanket, or a border and I think it looks marvellous with this funky green noro.
The pattern is from New Directions in Crochet from Anne Rabun Ough (I love her) and it goes a little something like this.
Chain in multiples of 6 and then add 5.
Row 1. 1dc in 3rd ch from hook, *ch3, skip 2ch, 1dc in next ch; repeat from * across ending with ch1, skip 1ch, 1dc in last ch, ch1, turn.
Row 2. 1dc in the first ch1 space, *ch2, 3tr in the next ch3 space, ch2, 1dc in the next ch3 space; repeat from * across ending with ch2, 1tr in 2nd ch of turning ch, ch4, turn.
Row 3. *1dc in ch2 space, ch3; repeat from * across ending with 1dc in last ch2 space, 1tr in top of turning ch, ch2, turn.
Row 4. 1tr in first dc, *ch2, 1dc in ch3 space, ch2, 3tr in next ch3 space; repeat from * across ending with ch1, 1tr in top of turning ch, ch1, turn.
Row 5. 1dc in ch1 space, *ch3, 1dc in ch2 space, ch3, 1dc in next ch2 space; repeat from * across ending with ch1, 1dc in top of turning ch, ch1, turn.
