That's It!

I think I'm happy with it now.  I like the shape.  At Lynn's suggestion, I made "chained" JKs which stay in place much better and I've adjusted the stitch count a bit more.

Next I'll show you a block of four to see the design that forms when you put them together.

What do you think?

Best wishes,


  1. It's great! What is a chained JK? Do you have a link as to how that's done? I can't wait to see it "four-up".

  2. Hi Michelle,

    Chained JKs are simple really: instead of making your knots as a ring like regular Josephine knots, you just make them as a chain which you snug up then re-attach it where you started. Basically a chain with only the second half of the double stitch. Does that make sense?

    Glad you like it!

  3. It's beautiful, Frivole! I love the way the JK chains look!

  4. Absolutely beautiful Frivole!!! I love it!!!

  5. Thank you Diane, yes, they are "neater", aren't they? In this instance anyway.

    Hi Tattabugg, thank you! I really like your pretty pansy shuttle.

  6. Yes, this motif is marvelous! Will you share the pattern online? I would love to give this lovely lace a go...

  7. Hi Isdihara, thank you. Yes, I will share the pattern - just need to write it up! I hope to do that soon.

  8. I think it is great! You are doing some really great designing!
