Simple Tunisian Lace Nets: Day 2 of 50

Class Handout Progress: Steeking Tunisian Lace

The graphic below completes a section of the Steeking Tunisian Lace class handout. The base stitch is Tunisian Extended Stitch, or Tes. This chameleon-like stitch has other names and many variations (see newsletter #49). It’s versatile, slightly odd, and one of my favorites, so I’m delighted to be teaching this class topic for the CGOA conference.

Here are a few swatches that contrast some of the simplest variations of this Tunisian lace net.

Four (of many more) ways to vary a simple net lace.

“Teeks” stands for Tunisian knit stitch extended twice. Easier to say than Tkse².

I’m also creating a graphic of fancier variations of these nets for comparison (and inspiration!). I plan to pin them to my Pinterest boards like when I swatched and pinned a slew of star stitch variations a few years ago.
