When I think of Queen Ann’s lace I think of the alley behind our house. There is a small strip of ground between the “garage” and the pavement. Queen Ann lace was always a problem there until I decided to stop fighting it and began to nurture it. Now I get 4 foot tall stems with big beautiful blooms.
This is one of the stair riser patterns I have not hooked yet but while I was designing it I saw it with a dark background (like the rest of the risers), white Queen Ann’s lace, and hit or miss grass using every color in my scrap basket.
I’ve taught this pattern several times and the most popular way to hook it is with a clear blue sky. For the perfect sky, I recommend my specially dyed sky wool.
How to hook Queen Ann’s lace
- Background- 1/2 yard
- White for dots – 1 strip
- Grass – For interest, 5-6 different wools or use your scrap bin.
