Triangular Columns Free Lace Knitting Stitch by Knitting Bee (www.knitting-bee.com)
A simple lace knitting stitch with a pattern that looks like triangular stacked columns. An easy lace knitting stitch to create set over 10 rows using yarn overs (yo) and simple decreases like k2tog (knit 2 together) that gives a right slanting decrease and ssk (slip, slip knit) that gives a left slanted decrease.
This lace stitch makes a lovely v shaped openwork effect. A great lace stitch to use for tees and tanks, I knitted this up in Patons cotton 8 ply and it creates a nice lightweight cool fabric that is perfect for summer.
