The Quilted Diamond Stitch

Description

The Lacy Heart Stitch

Description

The Lacy Heart Stitch uses Eyelet & Lace techniques to create a fabric of (as the name would suggest) small eyelet heart shapes.

I don't know about you, but this stitch screams "Babies Blanket" to me. Of course, this stitch would work well on any other light-weight garment, like a child's cardigan or for a summer scarf.

This stitch is not too tricky, but you need to keep an eye on where exactly you are in the pattern. There is nothing worse than getting lost!

Want to give it a go? Ok, let's get started...

The Waved Welt Stitch

Description

The Waved Welt Stitch uses a series of Knit & Purl stitches to generate a series of continuous wavy W's.

This stitch is an excellent choice for adding a bit of detail to what could otherwise be a rather dull stockinette/garter stitch area of a large project such as a throw or a jumper.

As this stitch is just a combination of simple knit and purl stitches, it is very straightforward to do for the beginner knitters. Just be careful to keep up with where you are in the pattern otherwise, you may end up with some wonky looking welts!
