Trellis Lace

Sample knit with Butterfly Cotton on US Size 6 needles

This beautiful lace stitch is very easy to do, and only a two row repeat.  As you can see from the picture, this can be knit to slant either to the left or the right.  (There is also a pattern for vertical trellis lace, which I will probably post at some point in the future - or sooner if asked!)


Abbreviations used in the pattern:
YO - yarn over
K2tog - knit two together
SSK - slip, slip, knit -- typically you will see instructions tell you to slip the two sts knitwise, which is fine.  Myself, I slip the first knitwise and the second purlwise, which I think makes the decrease a bit neater.  But it is up to you how you slip the stitches.


Work on an even number of stitches

Right Slant:

Row 1: K1, *YO, K2tog* Repeat from * to last stitch, K1
Row 2: Purl all stitches

Left Slant:

Row 1: K1, *SSK, YO*  Repeat from * to last stitch, K1
Row 2: Purl all stitches


See, I told you it was easy!

Here is the video.  Enjoy!

This is a very pretty stitch pattern. I'd love to see the vertical one please. Now, I trying to decide where to use this stitch!

I got this at Paradise Fibers a while back. I don't see it on their website now, and it was on sale when I got it so I am assuming they don't carry it any more. I did find "Butterfly Super 10 Cotton" at Yarn Market http://www.yarnmarket.com/yarn/Butterfly_Value_Yarns-Super_10_Yarn-8241.html

Not sure if that is exactly the same or not.
