Stained Glass Stripe

This is the four-row offset lace pattern that evolved from the swatch in the previous post. I love it; it has the delicacy of lace but robust texture within the "stripes".

  Here is the chart. The chart symbols are here.

Now to the name of the stitch. My husband was looking at the swatch with me and we happened to have it backlit. We decided simultaneously that it resembled stained glass. (Why, yes, we have been married a very long time!)

While working on this swatch, I began to wonder what a four-row pattern would look like if I didn't offset the pattern units. That's for next time. Until then . . .
