Today you’ll learn how to knit an easy lace pattern in four rows and a couple of steps that will be repeated time and time again.
This lace stitch is great for knitting many kinds of Spring-Summer projects, such as tops, scarves, rectangular shawls, cardigans or sweaters.
Similar to the Spring lace stitch that we learned sometime ago, but much quicker to memorize.
Grab your needles and let’s get started!
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
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.
Easy lace knitting stitch
CO multiples of 6 + 2; i.e.: 6 * 3 = 18 + 2 = 20 stitches
1º row (RS): K1, *K3, yo, sl2, k1, passo, yo*. Repeat from * to *, K1
2º and 4º rows: P across
3º row: K1, *yo, sl2, k1, passo, yo, K3*. Repeat from * to *, K1
These four rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached. When finished, BO purl wise after a row 3.
This is the wrong side of the work:
And remember, block your work once you have bind off (no matter what sort of garment)! It will look professional, crisp and smooth!
Enjoy the video tutorial!
Thank you for watching.
A big Hug to all of you and remember to love and respect each other.
