Barbara G. Walker's Treasury of Knitting Stitches (the first of 3 volumes)? Her directions for Veil Stitch, on P. 165, seem clearer to me than the ones you used, and her illustration shows a much neater and more even result.
a scan of these directions?
I'd like to try it again with DK weight & size 17 needles, as that might more closely approximate going from crochet thread to size 8 needles...
Has anyone here tried [color=darkblue][b]this[/b][/color] stitch?
I gave it a go last night with some worsted weight yarn & size 10 needles, and though I do get a very lacy open stitch, it doesn't look exactly like the picture on the pattern stitch page.
There just seem to be too many ways to interpret the instructions <sigh> again...I tried it two different ways already...
Any help would be appreciated.
P.S. I :muah: LOVE all the new emoticons!!! :woot:
