Embossed Lozenge Stitch Pattern creates embossed lattice network of stitches giving excellent texture to the knitted fabric. The lattice network rises above the fabric while the rest of it is the reverse stockinette stitch.
It is an all over pattern that won’t affect the gauge significantly. The Embossed Lozenge Stitch is also known as ‘Lattice Stitch’ or ‘Diamond Stitch’ because of the way it looks.
The Embossed Lozenge Stitch Pattern is perfect for making textured fabrics which look excellent on sweaters and cardigans. It is not a reversible pattern.
