lace knitting pattern island waves from 1984Two of last history posts were from the same pattern sheet – Airy Silhouette and Star of Nupps. Both from 1984. Here is the third pattern from this sheet (this is a last one from it, I promise) – Island Waves.

 

By the way, all the pattern names are from my fantasy. If you happen to know any official names then please, tell me. Otherwise I just use my imagination 🙂

 

On the pattern sheet, this pattern was used on a sweater. I see some additional uses – shawls (scarf freak as I am), mittens, socks, beret, baby blanket… . Well, shortly said – in every project you may come up (larger ones are better of course).

 

Now, let me introduce you:
