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
RS: Right side of the work
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.
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
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:
