Watch how to crochet the webbed lace stitch (video and written instructions)

You can use any yarn for this stitch, but beware of chunky or heavy weights as they could make you lose the definition of this delicate pattern and may give you a clumsy result. Fingering to DK yarn would be the most suitable choices. Check the manufacturer's band for hook size suggestions. You'll also need a pair of scissors and a tapestry needle to weave in your ends.
