In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to knit one of the most gorgeous lace stitches I’ve ever seen!
It has an amazing texture to it, a little bit of volume, as well as small eyelets.
In addition, it’s a two-row repeat pattern; the even rows, are plain purl rows.
Furthermore, the odd rows, where “the real action” takes place, include a three steps repeat. Short and sweet!
And in the video tutorial, I’m sharing how to do it in both, English and Continental styles, so all knitters can do it 🙂
Last but not least, this lace stitch is perfect for a wide range of projects, such as throws, wraps, shawls, tops, cardigans, sweaters… you name it!
So, grab your needles and some yarn, and let’s get lacy!
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side
yo: Yarn over
k3togtbl: Knit three stitches together through the back loop
WS: Wrong side
BO: Bind off
The odd rows form the right side of the work.
The edge stitches will be knitted on each row and purled on every even row.
The cast-on row shouldn’t be tight. If you like the long tail method, use two needles instead of one.
How to knit a gorgeous lace stitch pattern
CO multiples of 3 + 2 (edge stitches); i.e.: 7 * 3 = 21 + 2 = 23 st.
1º and every odd row (RS): K1 (edge), *insert the needle between the first and second stitches from the left-hand needle, K1, yo, k3togtbl*. Repeat from * to *, to last st, K1 (edge)
2º and every even row: P across
These two rows create the pattern. Repeat them until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO purlwise after row 1 (WS).
This is the other side of the work:
