Knit with Aabhar – Hourglass Eyelet Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description

Hourglass Eyelet Stitch is a textured pattern with a nice three-dimensional effect with motifs that look like stacked hourglasses. It also looks similar to the Honeycomb Stitch Pattern, except there are no cables in this one or no eyelets in the other one. It’s an easy pattern to knit as there are only eight rows with simple stitches.

This pattern will look gorgeous in large fabric projects such as a baby blanket and afghans. It’s also a versatile lace pattern that will work beautifully in summer tops and wraps.
