I have been obsessively occupied with the idea of knitting "Big Lace" for quite some time now. I date it pretty much to the time I discovered Malabrigo's Rasta, a bulky and extraorinarily soft Merino yarn. It's a pleasure to knit with, and very pretty in a simple cabled scarf. But I was longing to see it knit up as big, chunky lace.
Although I couldn't find a pattern that was exactly as I envisioned, there were a few brave big lace knitters on Ravelry. Armed with their wisdom, I cast on and knit me some B.I.G. L.A.C.E. And, it was big and quick, because about 24 rows into it, I was done.
Although I want to play around with the shape a little bit, I love the idea, and I love how this gently variegated yarn looks knit up in this way. This one needs a good blocking before you get a final show and tell, but I think I'm ready to call it a success.
