Eyelet & Lace Stitches
Eyelet & Lace Stitches Library
Eyelet and Lace stitches can add some airy elegance and sophistication to any knitting project, and open up a completely different sphere of possibilities compared to the often heavier looking Rib or Cable & Twist Stitches.
The beginner knitter may be a little daunted at first by the intricacy of this style of knitting as it does involve more technique. However, simple eyelets can create stunning patterns to begin with and lead with some perseverance to learning to do more fascinatedly detailed and intricate designs. Indeed, even combining several basic eyelet designs together into one project, while potentially requiring a little mathematical endeavor can lead to some spectacular results.
Eyelet and Lace are often worked in fine yarns to show their delicate detailing which works well for delicate shrugs, cardigans and baby blankets. That is not to say that heavier weight yarns are a no-go, as these can totally transform the look of a stitch and take on a whole new dimension.
Whatever the look you are trying to achieve, we hope our collection of Eyelet & Lace stitches give you some inspiration for your knitting projects.
