Gnome Hat Free Knitting Stitch designed by Knitting Bee. A new stitch is up for Free Pattern Friday!
I really enjoy playing around with lace and how you can pretty much come up with anything, the possibilities are infinite! I am loving how this stitch looks like cute little gnome hats, hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
This cute little stitch pattern looks quite nice on the back side of the work too!
yo = yarn over
s2kp2 = centered double decrease: slip two stitches together as if to knit, knit 1 stitch, then pass the two slipped stitches over.
