Not Lace Knitting, Knitting with Lace

mellywood mansion lace scarfHere’s yet another fun scarf project that uses a material you might not have thought of knitting with before: lace.

Yes, you can make lace with your knitting, but I mean actually knitting with lace fabric. That’s what Mel of Mellywood’s Mansion did when she was gifted a yard of lace fabric.

She cut it into strips and serged one side, then cut holes in the other side and knit it just like you’d do ruffle yarn.

This is really an ingenious use of fabric and the results are pretty, too. Check it out.
