Lacy Chain Links knitting stitch is an openwork knitting pattern with alternating placement of eyelets. It’s a simple stitch featuring yarn overs (yo) and k2tog, spread over easily memorizable 4 rows. It’s similar to the Chain Links stitch, except there are eyelets all over.
Ideal for summer wearables and home decor projects, it creates an airy, textured knitted fabric.
