As I was thinking about a pattern to work on, I realized that we have not done anything really lacey or delicate. So, I knitted a garter stitch using two different size needles: a No. 4 / 3.5mm and a No 12 / 8mm. This size variation allowed for some open and airy needlework.
You will need to select a larger needle from your stash. The larger needle should be approx 3 times larger than the needle you are currently using.
Also, the boarder should be knitted with the needle you have been using all along, but after the first four stitches, switch to the larger needle and knit, then switch back to the smaller needle for the boarder.
I switched the needles on each row.
