Belgian Lace - Ninth in the Vintage Stitch Series

Sample knit with Patons Lace on US Size 6 needles

This is another of the beautiful, vintage edgings from an old newspaper.  I forgot to write down the date of the paper, but I do know it is from the New York Tribune, from the late 1800's.

This pattern contains double yarn overs, and on the rows following you will work each wrap as a separate stitch.  The first wrap is knit and the second wrap is purled.

Cast on 11

Row 1: K3, YO, K2tog, K1, YO(2), K2tog, YO(2), K2tog, K1
Row 2: K3, P1, K2, P1, K3, YO, K2tog, K1
Row 3: K3, YO, K2tog, K3, YO(2), K2tog, YO(2), K2tog, K1
Row 4: K3, P1, K2, P1, K5, YO, K2tog, K1
Row 5: K3, YO, K2tog, K5, YO(2), K2tog, YO(2), K2tog, K1
Row 6: K3, P1, K2, P1, K7, YO, K2tog, K1
Row 7: K3, YO, K2tog, K12
Row 8: BO 6, K7, YO, K2tog, K1

Repeat these eight rows for the pattern.

Here is the video.  Happy Knitting, and Enjoy!

Thank you for a beautiful stitch pattern. I plan to tweak it and use as a Lace Castoff on a dickie. Your vid is excellent. Thanks again. Just what I was looking for this morning.
