Day 3 : Beginner Lace Knit Stitch : #21daysoflaceknitstitches



Welcome to Day 3 of the 21 Days of Lace Knit Stitches Series! Learn how to knit this beginner lace knit stitch in the video tutorial below. You’ll be learning the basics of lace knit stitches. You can use these 3 stitches in different combinations to create your own beautiful patterns!

Today’s stitch is a basic lace knit stitch. It has a decrease immediately followed by an increase, better known as a yarn over {YO}. We’ll be learning 2 types of decreases for this stitch, a left-leaning decrease and a right-leaning decrease.

Materials: Size US 15 {10mm} Knitting Needles

Yarn: Lana Grande by Cascade Yarns

Video Tutorial:

Pattern, Knit Flat: CO in multiples of 2 STS

Row 1 {RS}: *K2TOG, YO* {right-leaning decrease}

Row 2 {WS}: *P*

Row 3 {RS}: *YO, SKP* {left-leaning decrease}

Row 4 {WS}: *P* {same as row 2}

Repeat rows 1-4 until desired length.

Tip: When knitting row 1, make sure you include the last YO.

When knitting row 4, make sure you don’t include a YO at the end of the row.

Using the Beginner Lace Knit Stitch: Because we’re alternating a right-leaning decrease on one row with a left-leaning decrease on another row our finished object will be square.

Plus, It lays nice and flat when you’re finished, so you don’t have to worry about curling.

Increase and decrease on the same row, so the stitch count is the same on all rows.


Advanced Pattern, Knit Flat with a Clean Edge {as seen in the video}: CO in multiples of 2 + 2 STS

For my swatch I CO 14 STS

Row 3 {RS}: K1TBL *YO, SKP* K1TBL {left-leaning decrease}

Row 4 {WS}: WYIF S1PW *P* WYIF S1PW {same as row 2} Repeat rows 1-4 until desired length.
