French Lace Edging - Vintage Stitch Series

Sample knit with Patons Grace on US Size 5 needles (Kollage Yarns Square  Needles)

I decided to do another vintage lace edging this week.  I have seen "French Lace" stitch patterns several times in the old books and newspapers, and this is the one I chose this time.  This appeared in the March 19, 1882 New-York Daily Tribune and was submitted by Emma Estelle Wetsel.

Cast on 15 stitches
Row 1: K3, YO, K2tog, K3, YO, K1, YO, K6
Row 2: K6, YO, K3, YO, K2tog, K3, YO, K2tog, K1
Row 3: K3, YO, K2tog, K2tog, YO, K5, YO, K6
Row 4: Bind Off 4 sts, K1, YO, K2tog, K3, K2tog, YO, K2tog, K1, YO, K2tog, K1
Row 5: K3, YO, K2tog, K1, YO, K2tog, K1, K2tog, YO, K3
Row 6: K3, YO, K1, YO, S2KP, YO, K4, YO, K2tog, K1

And here is the video.  Happy Knitting and Enjoy!
