Knitting Tips and Tricks:  When knitting lace it is a really good idea to use a life line. A life line is a scrap piece of yarn (not your working yarn) of a different color - some knitters use dental floss. Every so often, maybe 4 inches or so, run a scrap yarn through all stitches and keep knitting. If you make a mistake, you can then pull out the stitches down to the last life line, put the stitches back on the needles and keep knitting.

Step 2: Pattern Instructions
