Eyelet Flowers

In my Stitch Guides, I like to include a variety of knit and purl, cable, lace and miscellaneous stitches. This stitch called Eyelet Flowers is a popular lace stitch which you can use anywhere.



Eyelet flowers look just like little flowers. They are a great overall pattern or used in conjunction with other stitches for just about any knit pattern you find.

To create Eyelet Flowers:

Use a multiple of 6 stitches +3

Row 1:  Knit.

Row 2 and all WS rows:  Purl.

Row 3:  Knit.

Row 5:  *K4, yo, skp; rep from *, end k3.

Row 7:  K2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, skp, *k1, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, skp; rep from *, end k2.

Row 9 and 11:  Knit.

Row 13:  K1, yo, skp, *k4, yo, skp; rep from *.

Row 15:  K2, yo, skp, k1 k2tog, yo, *k1, yo, skp, k1, k2tog, yo; rep from *, end k2.

Row 16:  Knit.

Knit Rows 1-16 for pattern.

Note:  “skp” = slip 1 st, knit 1 st, pass the slipped stitch over the knit stitch.
