I am interested in making afghans from lace afghan netting and yarn. I can find the netting in stores but have not been able to find any patterns. Does anyone know where to get these patterns. Thank you

I have to confess total ignorance on this... I don't know what lace afghan netting is. Can you explain it so I'll know? And, did you ever find any patterns?

Grammy, I think I have a couple of patterns. I think they are in a Crochet with Heart magazine, but they might be from Workbasket. I'll try to remember to look this weekend and let you know if I still have them.

Carol Ann, if it's what I'm thinking of, the lace is an open mesh that you weave the yarn through to create the design.

It is bought by the yard. My sister-in-law bought it in a kit many years ago. She has been able to buy the lace but couldn't find any more patterns. They have some of the material at Hobby lobby.

The only place to get the patterns was in the old kits (except for one leaflet which I have -"Afghan Heirlooms"). I have been trading these patterns (from the 80's-90's) with several other ladies over the past year and have collected many. Are you interested in any one (or more) in particular? I could send you a list. What patterns do you have?

I don't really have a pattern. I took one of my sister-in-laws afghans she made and used it to make one. It is a zigzag pattern. I would be interested in any you would be willing to share. Do you know of any place you can buy the kits. Thank you for replying.

I have located a retailer for the afghan lace/netting. If anyone is interested, its very inexpensive. Also I am interested in trading patterns or free patterns. Please email me if interested.
