How much does lace stretch?
I'm working on a leafy lace (stockinette knit) scarf. This will be the first time I actually soak, stretch and block a piece and I am not sure how much I can stretch it. I don't want to end up with a piece that is too long or too short. I read that garter can stretch up to 30% but this is stockinette.

The yarn is single ply DK, 50/50 silk and mohair.

Any tips would be much appreciated!
