Lace Stitches

How to knit the Spring Lace stitch: for your next seasonal scarf

The Spring Lace stitch is a romantic pattern, ideal for knitting your next Autumn or Spring wrap/scarf.

It looks complicated, however, it’s a great opportunity to practice if you are just starting out knitting lace.

All the techniques involved are easy and explained step by step in the video tutorial.

My suggestion: Start with a small swatch, using thick needles and bulky yarn, to learn how it works. To knit your scarf, use smaller needles and a finer yarn, to get a better look.

On my swatch, I used fine yarn (number 2) and 3.5 mm / 4 US knitting needles. Remember: It’s always easier to knit lace with sharp tips needles 😉

Finally, don’t forget to block your piece before wearing it, so you get a nice definition of the stitches.

So…let’s knit together!
