Simple lace stitch knitting pattern worked over four rows!
k = knit
p = purl
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together.
ssk = slip, slip, knit. Slip two stitches knitwise one at a time onto the right needle, stick point of left needle in two slipped stitches in front of the right needle and knit.
yo = yarn over
p2tog = purl 2 stitches together
p2tog tbl = purl two stitches together into the back loop
Cast on multiples of 10 plus 1
Row 1: * p1, k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, ssk, k2, * p1
Row 2: k1 * p1, p2tog tbl, yo, p3, yo, p2tog, p1, k1 *
Row 3: * p1, k2tog, yo, k5, yo, ssk, * p1
Row 4: k1, *p9, k1 *
Wow!! and I thought I knew just about every knitting stitch, only to be asked by my niece who always comes to Auntie Shirley for help with her knitting, to be asked “do you know how to do Branch Lace stitch” and I had to admit “no, that’s a new one to me”.
Thanks to your website, problem solved and I look forward to having a go.
Thank for this lace pattern, I’m knitting a sweater vest and it perfect to mix it up!
That sounds great! Many thanks for enjoying the pattern!
How many multiples of 10+1 would I do for a shawl pattern
Row 2 actually works better if you slip, slip, purl 2 tog, rather than p2tog tbl. Doing it as written twists the stitch
Great, thanks for the improvement on this stitch, I will try it!
