Alphabet Knitting Charts are amazing for when you want to work in colorwork, but what happens when you want to spell things out in lace? Unfortunately I have been unable to find any free lace knitting charts, but I did find some patterns for sale that include lace knitting alphabets. (Prices are valid as of 4/1/2012)
- Lace Alphabet Scarf - contains uppercase lace letters (the entire alphabet) $8.00 USD
- Lullaby Blanket - The blanket says "Sleep Baby Hush Baby" in lace... I'm not sure if other letters are provided so you can use your own message. $6.69 USD
- Forever Loved Blanket designed by Elinber has a full lace alphabet (charted) plus special characters - $6.50 USD
- Alphabet Blanket - can be found in the book The Baby Knits Book: The Ultimate Collection of Knitwear Designs for Newborns to 3-Year-Olds, which unfortunately appears to be out of print. There are a few copies available on Amazon (as of 4/1) but they are pretty pricey.
Lace alphabets are more complicated than colorwork ones because you have to consider increases and decreases along with YO's that form the letters. There is definitely a market for the design of lace alphabets. Do you know of any patterns that contain lace letters?
