A very cute stitch that combines lace and texture, for everyone, including knitters who may have been slightly scared by that four letter word… lace.

The textured eyelets stitch pattern isn’t reversible, but it doesn’t roll, so it can be used to knit cowls, vests, summer sweaters, jackets, wraps or shawls….you name it!
