Twisted Lace

Here is another easy lace pattern for your knitting collection. This one is called Twisted Lace.  It’s very easy to knit and you can knit this as a square to be combined with other knit stitch squares or you can knit this as a sequence stitch on a scarf or vest or any pattern.  It usually looks best when used with other stitches.

However you choose to knit the Twisted Lace stitch, it will look beautiful.  In face, it will look like this:


Note that the twisted lace is separated by some rows of stockinette stitch. (Stockinette is just a fancy way of saying “knit one row, and purl the next.)

Here is how you knit the Twisted Lace stitch:

Use on a row of even stitches.

Row 1:  (RS)  – YO, k2tog, *yo, k2tog; repeat from * to end.

Row 2:   Purl all stitches.

Row 3:  K1, *yo, k2tog; repeat to end.

Row 4:  Purl all stitches.

Repeat Rows 1-4 for desired length.   Bind off all stitches.

The Twisted Lace stitch gives you a nice diagonal openwork look. It looks very effective when combined with other stitches. As always, these stitches are easy to knit, but look so complicated. That’s the secret to knitting!
