Welcome to Day 5 of the 21 Days of Lace Knit Stitches Series! Learn how to knit this fishnet lace knit stitch in the video tutorial below. It looks like a simple pattern, but this one is a more advanced lace knit stitch. It’s only 3 stitches {None of them are purl stitches!} and has a nice rhythm when you get going.

We’re going to kick it up a notch on this stitch! The fishnet lace stitch has YO’s on the front and back making it a little tricky, I definitely had to pay attention.

Materials: Size US 17 {12mm} Knitting Needles

Yarn: Lana Grande by Cascade Yarns

Video Tutorial:

Advanced Pattern, Knit Flat with a Clean Edge: CO in multiples of 2 +2 STS

For my swatch I CO 12 STS

Row 1 {WS}: WYIF S1PW *YO, K2TOG TBL* WYIF S1PW

Row 2 {RS}: K1TBL *SKP, YO* K1TBL Repeat rows 1-2 until desired length.

Tip: Place a removable stitch marker on the front, so you know which side you’re on. {Without having to think too hard.} 😉

On Row 1, be careful not to lose the first YO stitch. When creating it, I place my right index finger on the YO while I’m knitting the next STS together, so it stays in place.

Using the Fishnet Lace Knit Stitch: It lays nice and flat, no curling.

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

The stitch leans to the left, naturally.

I think this stitch would benefit from blocking to help shape it and even out the stitches.

Pattern, Knit Flat {w/o the edge stitches}: CO in multiples of 2 STS

Row 1 {WS}: *YO, KTOG TBL*

Row 2 {RS}: *SKP, YO*
