Grid lace stitch: A reversible, one-row repeat knitting pattern
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit the Grid lace stitch; a one-row repeat pattern, reversible (identical on both sides), moreover, it doesn’t curl. What more could we ask?
The Grid lace stitch isn’t complicated at all: Only 3 simple steps to memorize, and all rows are the same! So, it’s a nice option if you are a beginner and aren’t yet too comfortable when it comes to knitting lace 😉
It shares the same DNA of the “Lace stitch in two easy steps”, also ideal for knitting Summer scarves, shawls, and wraps.
Ok, grab your needles, and let’s get started!
p2tog: Purl two stitches together
yotw: Yarn over twice, or double yarn over (wrap the yarn twice around the right-hand needle)
BO: Bind off
How to knit the Grid lace stitch
CO multiples of 4; i.e.: 4 * 4 = 16 stitches
1º row: *K2, yotw, p2tog*. Repeat from * to *, to the end.
These three steps will be repeated on each row, until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO purlwise on the side you started (you’ll know because the yarn form the cast-on edge is on the left side of the work).
This is the other side of the work:
If you’ve been following me for some time, you probably have noticed that I always recommend to use sharp tip knitting needles.
Why? Because they will make your work much easier!
And my second suggestion, when knitting lace, is to block your work once it’s finished.
Blocking your knitting will make it look professional; the pattern will appear crisper and neater, ultimately, the stitches will get a better definition!
