Double Lace Rib knitting stitch: Two rows and three steps

In today’s tutorial, you’ll learn a beautiful new stitch: A two-row and three steps knitting pattern, perfect for knitting light Summer garments (because all knitters LOVE the one-row and two-row stitches 😉

The Double Lace Rib is not reversible, but it looks amazing, so don’t let this stop you from knitting an elegant scarf, a shawl or a wrap for the warmest months of the year.

Let’s get started!


CO: Cast on

st: Stitch

RS: Right side of the work

K: Knit

P: Purl

k2tog: Knit two stitches together

ssk: slip one stitch as if to knit, slip the next (same way), put both stitches back onto the left-hand needle, and knit them together.

2yo: Double yarn over

BO: Bind off

This swatch is knitted with cotton yarn for 4 – 4.5 mm needles (6 -7 US), using 4 mm needles.

My suggestion for this stitch is to use one size down from what’s normally recommended by the manufacturer.

And…speaking of knitting needles…the lovely Rosewood ones are available again… in many sizes!

They are definitely one of my favorites (I use them in many of my video tutorials), and for a long time, it was simply impossible to get your hands on a pair!

Double Lace Rib knitting stitch pattern: only two rows and

three steps

CO multiples of 4 + 2 st; i.e.: 4 * 3 = 12 + 2 = 14 stitches.

1º row (RS): K1, *ssk, 2yo, k2tog*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1.

2º row: P1, *P2, K1, P1*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, P1.

These two rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.

When finish, BO knitwise, after a row 2.

This is the wrong side of the work:
