Four-row repeat, lace stitch knitting pattern

In today’s tutorial, you’ll learn a four-row repeat lace stitch: Quick to memorize (only 3 steps that will be repeated all the time), and easier than the last one we practiced.

It’s a great pattern for knitting a wide range of projects, including: Summer tops, cardigans, sweaters, scarves, wraps… and maybe a vest?

(And I’d love you to give it a try, since we’ll need it for our next project 😉

Ok, grab your needles, and let’s get started!

Abbreviations

CO: Cast on

RS: Right side of the work

K: Knit

P: Purl

yo: Yarn over

sl1: Slip one stitch as if to knit (pass one stitch knitwise onto the right-hand needle, without knitting it)

passo: Pass the slipped stitch over the last two knitted stitches

BO: Bind off

How to knit lace step by step, in four rows. So Woolly.

N.B.:

The odd rows form the right side of the pattern.

The first and the last stitch will be knitted in every row.

CO multiples of 3 + 2; i.e.: 3 * 5 = 15 + 2 = 17 stitches.

1º row (RS): K1, K1, *yo, sl1, k2, passo*. Repeat from * to *, to last 3 st, K3

2º and 4º rows: P across

3º row: K1, *yo, sl1, k2, passo*. Repeat from * to *, ending with K1

These four rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached. When finished, BO purlwise after a row 3.

This is the wrong side of the work:

This swatch was knitted in a cotton-polyester blend, pretty soft and light
