Pattern Description

Alternating Lace Stitch Pattern is an all-over lace knitting pattern that’s quite easy to learn. It creates an overall pattern of a repeating set of six eyelets arranged in columns. These eyelet columns are arranged in a brickwork-style pattern with stockinette stitches between them.

This pattern works up quickly as every other row is a straight purl row. The Alternating Lace Stitch Pattern is ideal for making airy fabrics for projects such as summer tops, light wraps, shawls, or a throw.
