How to knit an easy two-row repeat lace stitch

Today, I’m sharing how to knit a super easy two-row repeat lace stitch pattern (easier than the last one we practiced…guaranteed!).

Honestly, if you haven’t started to knit lace yet, or you have but still don’t feel comfortable, try this one!

My suggestion? Begin with a small swatch and gain confidence as you go.

It has a nice texture to it, and its vertical design makes it perfect for Spring-Summer garments, such as shawls, throws, or a jacket made out of cotton yarn, bamboo, linen (or its blends).

However, when knitted in wool yarn, Alpaca, Cashmere, etc., this two-row repeat lace stitch will work beautifully in an Autumn-Winter scarf or cowl.

Actually, I’ve knitted two swatches: One of them using cotton yarn (using 2 strands at a time); and the other, using 100% wool.

Both look lovely, so it’s a pretty versatile stitch pattern 😉

I like it so much, that I’ve used it on a sweater, mixed with other stitch patterns! 

You’ll see the detail further down…

It’s up to you!

Now, grab your needles, and some yarn, and let’s get busy!

K: Knit

P: Purl

RS: Right side of the work


The odd rows form the right side of the work.

The stitch count doesn’t include selvage stitches. If you prefer to have them, add two stitches.

CO multiples of 4 + 1; i.e.: 4 * 4 = 16 + 1 = 17 stitches. 

Row 1 (RS): P across

Row 2: K1 *yo, dd, yo, K1* Repeat from * to *, to end.

These two rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.

When finished, BO purlwise after row 2 (RS).
