Starlight Lace

Sample knit with Claudia Hand Painted Yarns on Knitter's Price Cubics, Size 6 

In celebration of my going on vacation, I am posting the new stitch early, because I won't be able to post over the weekend as normal.

This is a beautiful stitch that looks more complicated than it really is.  It seems long with 16 rows, but every other row is just a plain purl row, so it probably won't take you as long to get through as you may think.  

There is some curl to the sides of this stitch, so you may want to consider a border.  Also, blocking is recommended, as it will open up the stitches (so a blockable fiber is recommended).  Below is a picture of the stitch unblocked (on top) and the part on the bottom, I didn't properly block it, just wet the sample and laid it on the counter to dry over night.  You get the idea though!

Here is the video, and below that printable instructions, both written and charted.  On the chart, wrong side rows are not shown, only right side rows.  Read the chart from right to left.  Happy Knitting, and Enjoy!
