Invitation for KAL of the Egeblad & Other Circular Lace Beauties
Several of us have started or finished this gorgeous doily and made it into centerpieces or blankets.

http://www.yarnover.net/patterns/doi...k/egeblad.html

I am working on an extension for anyone wanting to make it larger than the original 87 rounds. Have also counted the stitches per round since the original pattern doesn't have this info.

You'll need double pointed needles or circulars and the pattern has lots of lacy stitch directions. Not difficult at all. If you'd like to learn lace, this is a good one to learn on. Guage is not extremely important and the possibilities are endless. This would be a wonderful gift for anyone as a doily, tablecloth or blanket.

Hope you'll join us!

I'm almost done making Alita http://www.yarnover.net/images/alita.jpg in worsted weight yarn and really enjoyed making it. I just have to finish the edging.

The Egeblad is definitely on my list to do in worsted, as well. I have a couple of things to finish, so hopefully this will still be going when I'm ready to jump in!

Mary, I can't wait to see your completed Egeblad with the extended pattern.

Ingrid, Please post pics when you are finished. I'm curious to see how big yours will be using worsted weight.

I'm on Rnd 60 of the Alita...it was suppose to be a Mother's Day gift for MIL but I don't see that happening. I'm using Cascade EcoWool with Size 10 needles.

I really enjoy making these into Doily Throws...they are beautiful!!

I just wanted to share a pic of my completed Eceblad.

It's absolutely gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing this!

The one I'm doing to test the extensions is out of an inexpensive(cheap), cotton slub yarn, about a size 10 and using size 2 needles so it will look alot smaller than yours. I wanted to make sure that the extensions were right before I do one in a worsted weight or spent alot of bucks on a nicer yarn. It's looking okay, can't really tell with it being a bag right now.

These are just too beautiful to wait for. I'll have to go through my stash to at least get started

It came out beautiful! I hope mine looks 1/8 of what yours looks like. And I'll be extremely happy!
I'm in Mary! Thanks for starting it. YAY. I'll have to start it when I get back. Hmmmm what color... I have a few colors to try it out it.

Woohoo! Glad you started this up because my mom chose Egeblad
as the pattern she wanted me to make up and I'm getting ready
to start. I plan to do a test knit to make it just as a doily first then
make it as a blanket so I look forward to seeing your extensions!

I've knitted 77 rounds so far in Beaverslide McTaggart Tweeds. I just added my third 4.5oz skein on round 76 so I think I'll have enough to finish. It should last until round 89 according to my calculations and there are only 87. It's getting really big! I have about 36" so far so it will finish at maybe 42" unblocked.

I would recommend doing this in Eco, Beaverslide or another heavier weight yarn instead of worsted because it's a lovely textured pattern and it goes so fast! I think this will end up costing $27 to make, which is awesome for a lace blanket.

I'm hoping I can finish and block this weekend!

Oh Goodie!!! I WANNA SEE!!!! Great bargain, too! What size needles are you using?

My experimental extended Egeblad continues.... on round 62, final approach! Only 25 more to gooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!! I'll explain the "final approach" soon. I think it's going to be just fine with the extensions.
