Lacy Arch Free Knitting Stitch

Lacy Arch Free Knitting Stitch by Knitting Bee.

I had a lot of fun with this stitch, it is quite easy to master once you have gone through the pattern a few times. This lace stitch with super-imposed arches would work very nicely for a scarf, tee or tank or anything else you put your mind to. It involves simple increases and decreases like yo, k2tog and ssk; yo’s creating the eyelets and k2tog a right leaning slant while ssk creates a left leaning slant.


The same stitch from a few different angles.



And how this lace stitch looks in the back of the work.
