Diagonal Lace Stripe Stitch

The Diagonal Lace Stripe Stitch

Description

The Diagonal Lace Stripe Stitch creates Rib Stitch pattern with diagonal bands of Eyelet openwork.

This stitch is an excellent choice for adding a bit of raised texture to any sweater, cardigan or hat.

This is quite a short and straightforward pattern, but don't let that fool you into complacency, there are a couple of tricky advanced techniques in there, so make sure you fully understand them before you start.

Looking to get started, well lets move on to the instructions...

Instructions

Cast on any multiple of ten plus three stitches for your project.

The first row begins with a repeating pattern purling three, yarnover, then slip one stitch purlwise, knit one and then pass the slip stitch over, and knit five. Keep repeating this until you arrive at the last three stitches and purl three.

The second row starts by knitting three, purling four, then purl two together through the back loop, yarnover and purl one. Continue repeating that entire ten stitch pattern until you reach the last three stitches and knit three.

The third row starts with a repeating pattern of purling three, knitting two, yarnover, slip one purlwise, knit one and pass the slip stitch over, then knit three. Keep repeating this till the last three stitches and purl three.

For the fourth row knit three, purl two, purl two together through the back loop, yarnover, then purl three. Continue repeating this pattern until you get to the last three stitches and knit three.

In the fifth row, again we start with a ten stitch pattern, consisting of; purl three, knit four, yarnover, slip one stitch purlwise, knit one and pass the slip stitch over, then knit one. Keep this up across the row until the last three stitches and purl all three.

Moving onto the sixth row, knit three, then purl two together through the back loop, yarnover and purl five. Keep up this ten stitch repeat until you hit the last three stitches and knit three.

Things become a bit simpler in the seventh row, purl three then knit seven. Keep repeating this until you hit the last three stitches and purl three. For the eighth row, knit three, then purl seven and again continue with this pattern until you reach the last three stitches and knit three.
