How to knit the most charming Lace Mesh stitch pattern

Spring is coming, and it’s been a while since the last lace stitch we learned (the Lace Squares stitch). Luckily, I found this beautiful pattern, one of the most charming Lace Mesh stitches I’ve ever seen!

It’s similar to the Netting stitch: Easy to knit, it has a lovely texture, not reversible, but it lays flat and the wrong side looks great too. The Lace Mesh is a left-leaning stitch, but no cable needle is required.


CO: Cast on

st: Stitch

RS: Right side of the work

K: Knit

P: Purl

Yfwd: Yarn forward

Sl1: Slip one stitch as if to purl

Psso: Pass the slipped stitch over

BO: Bind off

This gauge swatch is knitted with 3.75 mm needles (5 US size), using a cotton yarn for 5 mm needles. For knitting lace, I suggest using sharp pointed needles; they are really useful and will make the work easier for you.

I think this stitch looks best when you go down at least 1 size than the recommendation found on the yarn labels.

CO multiples of 3 (minimum of 6 st).

1º row (RS): K2, *Yfwd, Sl1, K2, Psso*. Repeat from * to * to last st, K1.

2º and 4º rows: P across

These four rows create the pattern. Keep repeating them until the desired length is reached. When finish, BO knitwise after a 4º row.

And don’t forget to block your work! It will look 100% better after blocking!
