The Hail stitch is a lovely lace pattern: Pretty easy to knit (perfect for beginners), full of texture, great for knitting lots of garments, such as baby clothing, sweaters, scarves, bags, cushions, shawls, blankies, tops…it works with everything!
The only techniques required are: Knit, purl and knit two stitches together, that’s it! So, it doesn’t matter if you are just starting to knit 😉
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
k2tog: Knit two stitches together
BO: Bind off
Hail stitch knitting pattern: Easy textured lace
CO multiples of 2; i.e.: 2 * 6 = 12 stitches.
1º row (RS): Knit across
2º row: Purl across
3º row: K1, *k2tog*. Repeat from *, to last st, K1.
4º row: K1, *K1 in the horizontal bar before next st, K1*. Repeat from *, to last st, K1.
These four rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO knitwise, after a row 4.
