Question about this pattern *ETA ACTUAL PATTERN*
Ok so this is a free pattern so I can share,
This wavy mesh curtain offers light and privacy for your home.
It can easily be made wider or longer if needed: every 10 additonal stitches equals 2½”,
and each vertical repeat of the pattern is about 3”.
If you are feeling particularly ambitious, turn it into a bed skirt - just insert elastic into
the finished hem so that it snugs up to your box spring.
A slightly loosened gauge gives the lace a more airy quality.

CO 198 sts.

Cont to work selvedge sts as given in Row 1, work five repeats of the Checkerboard
Mesh pattern (piece measures approximately 15”).
Changing to St st, work 12 rows for outside of hem. P 1 row (turning ridge), then
work 12 more rows of stockinette for inside hem. BO loosely.
Block curtain: in warm water, soak the curtain until it is thoroughly damp. Spread the
piece across a large towel; roll the towel and curtain together and press gently to
remove the water (do not wring). Remove the curtain from the roll and lay on a flat
surface to dry, pinning to measurements.
When dry, fold hem at turning ridge; using whip stitch, tack the bound-off edge to the
WS of the curtain, making sure to leave both ends open.
To mount, slide curtain onto a 1” tension rod and set inside window.
My question is, how beginer-friendly is this? I would LOVE to make these but Im not very advanced in knitting at all but I would love a challange!
