One of the most beautiful net stitches I’ve seen: A lace knitting pattern that creates a textured mesh fabric, ideal to knit bags, wraps, shawls or Summer tops.
Easy to knit (4 rows only) and just a few techniques to implement. The texture is so special, that although the Netting stitch is not reversible, it looks like the Trinity stitch on the wrong side.
Let’s get started!
CO: Cast on
YO: Yarn over
K2tog: Knit two stitches together
BO: Bind off
How to knit the Netting stitch pattern
CO multiples of 4 + 5 + 2 edge stitches (i.e. 4*3 = 12+5 =17+2 = 19).
1º Row (RS): K1 (edge), *K1, yo, slip 1 knitwise, k2tog, pass slipped st. over, yo*. Repeat from * to * to last 2 st., K1, then K1 (edge)
2º & 4º Rows (WS): Purl across
3º Row: K1 (edge), k2tog, yo, *K1, yo, slip 1 knitwise, k2tog, pass slipped st. over, yo*. Repeat from * to * to last 4 st., K1, yo, slip 1 st. knitwise, K1, pass slipped st. over, K1 (edge).
Repeat these 4 rows until you reach the desired length. BO after a 4th Row, knitwise.
This is how it looks on the wrong side:
