Confession time: my best selling pattern was created out of laziness. Yup, I didn't want to deal with a slip stitch ribbing pattern I bought (although it was very pretty), and I wanted a lacy ribbing pattern. The sc, ch loops of this pattern also make for immediate gratification. Especially since it is made with worsted weight yarn.
It's even prettier and summer-light when you use a yarn like Caron's Spa yarn---which I have found on clearance at Hobby Lobby these past couple of weeks.
