Cat's Eye Lace

Sample knit with Patons Grace Cotton, US Size 6 needles
This is a beautiful lace stitch that is actually really simple to knit.  Don't let the double yarn over scare you.  In the rows following the double yarn overs, you will be working each yarn over separately, instead of as one.  

Cast on a multiple of 4

Row 1: (Right side) K4 *YO-twice, K4*
Row 2: P2 *P2tog, P1 into first YO, K1 into second YO, P2tog*, end with P2
Row 3: K2, YO *K4, YO-twice*, end with K4, YO, K2
Row 4: P3 *P2tog-twice, P1 into first YO, K1 into second YO*, end with P2tog-twice, P3

Repeat these four Rows for the pattern.

Here is the video.  Happy Knitting, and Enjoy!

very nice stitch, clear and easy instructions - I'm a knitting and crochet instructor, and this stitch is easy enough for begginers, thank you very much, for the pattern and the video!

Warm regards,

Love this pattern and so easily explained. I will definetly make a scarf for the first time. Then maybe try a cardigan.
