The Chevron Lace Stitch
The Chevron Lace Stitch is an Eyelet & Lace stitch that adds some slightly more complicated increase/decrease techniques to generate a lace Chevron effect.
If you are looking for something for a light-weight shawl or pullover, then eyelet & lace stitches are particularly appropriate, especially when paired with a less elastic yarn like cotton to create a chic draping effect.
As with most Lace stitches, there is a lot of increasing/decreasing involved in pulling off this pattern. In particular, for this pattern, there are a couple of "not so standard" increase/decreases so as ever, please, please, please. Make sure you fully understand the different techniques required before you begin knitting!
Shall we get cracking? Let's move onto the instructions...
Cast on any multiple of eight stitches plus one for your project. Pay attention to rows nine and eleven, you will increase by one stitch (for a nine stitch repeat) in row nine, and then decrease by one stitch (returning to an eight stitch repeat) in row eleven respectively.
