Oval Lace Pattern Free Knitting Stitch

Oval Lace Pattern Free Knitting Stitch by Knitting Bee.

https://www.knitting-bee.com/

Beautiful free lace knitting stitch featuring oval shapes stacked on top of each other in a honeycomb style. This lace is made using simple lace increases and decreases including k2tog and k3tog (right slanted increases), ssk (left slanting decreases) and yo increases (eyelet/hole producing increases).

This is a good stitch to use for summer tees and tanks, looks great when made out of cotton (I used an 8 ply cotton in blue). Use it to your own pleasure, what you can make is unlimited!
