There is nothing more delicate and dainty than lace. When you’re a knitter, it is not even possible not to try your hand at lace knitting patterns – just so you too can have one of these gorgeous creations.

Whatever type or look of lace knitting pattern you choose, it will always look fabulous and ultra-chic.

While knitting lace can look a little ambitious for some people, as long as you understand the foundations of knitting, you should be good to go. However, if knitting is still a new skill for you and you'd like to take things to the next level so that you can be a confident knitter, check out the professionally filmed Learn to Knit class that will take your knitting skills to the next level.

With these, we have chosen 15 of the best lace knitting patterns we can find on the web.

Grace Socks

Nothing is as graceful as lace. This toe-up lace sock covers the whole foot with grace since the lace pattern starts from the tip of the toe. Twisted-stitch tendrils lick flame-like at the edges of the foot, then blossom into vines that extend up the sides. Made with #1/2.25mm circular needles, this sock features a rounded toe and gusset/heel flap construction, my favorite construction for a really well-fitting sock.

Cascade Lace Blend Shoulder Cowl

The soft caress of this yarn is perfect in this elegant and easy-to-wear garment. The design evokes the soft curves of cascading water or sand patterned by the receding tide. The cowl’s simple shape is highlighted by small, round glass beads at the neckline, while larger, cubic beads adding weight and sparkle at the hem.
