Today we are going to learn an adorable lace stitch pattern, ideal for knitting baby blankets, market bags, a Spring top or a Summer jumper/cardigan.
The Lace Net stitch pattern is similar to the “Most charming Lace Mesh pattern” we learned sometime ago, but somehow it looks more complex.
Calm down ;)! It’s super easy to knit: only four rows to repeat (the odd rows are plain purl rows), and the lace work isn’t complicated at all (the same steps are repeated time after time).
For best results, I suggest you go 1 number down from the suggested needle size on the label (just like we did when knitting the Two-row Reversible lace stitch).
CO: Cast on
RS: Right side of the work
yo: Yarn over (bring the yarn forward)
pass3o2: pass the third stitch (from right to left) over the other two.
Lace Net knitting stitch pattern
CO multiples of 3 + 4 stitches; i.e.: 3 * 4 = 12 + 4 = 16 stitches
1º row: P across
2º row (RS): K2, *pass3o2, K1, yo, K1*. Repeat from * to *, ending with K2
3º row: P across
4º row: K3, *pass3o2, K1, yo, K1*. Repeat from * to *, ending with K1
5º row: P across
The last four rows create the pattern. After knitting rows 1 to 5 the first time, repeat only rows 2 to 5, until the desired length is reached.
When finished, BO purl wise, after any odd row.
This is the wrong side of the work:
