Eyelet Stripe Lace Pattern


On this page is a video tutorial and the written pattern for knitted 'eyelet stripe' lace.


The pattern uses knit stitches, purl stitches, yarn overs, ssk decreases and p2tog decreases, so is fairly easy to knit, especially as it's only a 2-row pattern repeat.


The design is a combination of a couple of lace knitting patterns, and I call the result 'Herringbone Eyelet-Stripe Lace' (to give it its full title :p)

It create stripes, or columns, of eyelets (holes) in a zigzag arrangement. Each pattern repeat creates one stripe.


I have added 4 rows of knit stitches (i.e. garter stitch) around the edge as a border, but this is optional. Either way, you need to cast on a multiple of 4 stitches to begin.



Row 1: k4, *k2, yo, ssk

Repeat from * until there are 4 stitches left, then k4

Row 2: k4, *p2, yo, p2tog

Repeat from * until there are 4 stitches left, then k4



(Where k = knit stitches and p = purl stitches).


If you don't want the garter stitch border, just don't knit the 'k4' at the beginning and end of each pattern row.



As with any lace knitting project, 'blocking' your knitting makes it look neater and more professional, and using a finer weight yarn makes the lace look more delicate and floaty.


Thanks for reading!
