Thanks, Tephra. The only thing is, row 1 and 5 have to end with K6. Row 3 ends with with K3.
The center row of lace, row 3, is just moved over 3 stitches from the edge, and ends with only k3.
Thanks for your comments! It is a nice stitch, just one that demands concentration!

It still does end in knit 6, there's a knit 3 in the repeated portion at the end, which with the last 3 stitches outside the repeat is 6 stitches. Smiley

  Ok! This pattern is abit confusing, until you get used to seeing how the stitches are forming.
After a while, it's real easy to spot and fix a mistake. But in the beginning, I was taking out a lot!

I was having a "argh, nothing works right" day, that's my excuse for getting all turned around there for a bit.  Cheesy

 I know the feeling! I almost gave up on this piece, but then I pushed thru! Now it sits finished in my closet.
 I'm going to do some test samples to learn a couple of leaf lace designs in an old how-to book I have. Those may be a real challenge!

This is the crochet pattern I got halfway done before I ripped it all out since I didn't like the color.  http://www.craftyarncouncil.com/?q=node/410

Your pattern is prettier.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

 Everkutz... Thank You! I just looked at that pattern. it appears to be simply joined at the wrist, which is a nice idea. The pattern I used actually has sleeves. That could be done with this one too, as long as there is enough width.
  Thanks for showing me, and the compliment! Did you look in the crochet post I put up last week, the one with the Kippah? It has some stitch ideas in the second part of the post.
The stitch samples I showed are in the 2nd reply. Here's the link:

Let me know what you think! Or, if you want more details on those stitches. I thought they were pretty easy to do, just by looking at.?
