How to knit an easy lace stitch pattern in four rows

Today you’ll learn how to knit an easy lace stitch pattern in four rows and a couple of steps that will be repeated time and time again.

How to knit easy lace patterns for beginners


CO: Cast on

RS: Right side of the work

K: Knit

P: Purl

yo: Yarn over (bring the yarn forward)

sl2: Slip two stitches, one by one, as if to knit (pass two stitches knitwise onto the right-hand needle, without knitting them).

passo: Pass the slipped stitches over the last knit stitch

BO: Bind off


The odd rows form the right side of the pattern.

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