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.
