Mesh lace stitches, or faggot lace patterns, are often used as ground fabrics in a larger lace motif. They also make a great and beautiful allover pattern. Faggot lace patterns are usually made up of one or two columns of eyelets with matching decreases, which gives them a wonderfully simple appeal. Quite often mesh stitches are made up of a 1 row repeat, an easy to remember knit! In this class, we’ll explore several mesh lace patterns, as well as appropriate uses for them. We’ll talk about which stitches are stable enough for a larger knitted piece, and which are best for smaller accessories. We’ll also discuss how to read your knitting to avoid mistakes, as well as how to repair mistakes in mesh when they occur.
