Learning Lace....
What is good beginners lace pattern? I want to try my hand at something easy and very small. Not sure what really is done in lace though. I doubt dishcloths!

Actually there are lots of dish cloth patterns that utilize lace. It's a good way to learn the stitches.

A fairly easy and memorizable lace is Feather and Fan. The pattern can be found in stitch dictionaries and there are numerous free feather and fan patterns for scarves and such on line.

Really, lace dishcloths? Wow, I will try those first and also look up the feather and fan pattern as well. Thank you ladies.
