Knit with Aabhar – Parasol Lace Stitch Pattern

Pattern Description

Parasol Lace Stitch Pattern is a vertical lace pattern that resembles parasols, just as the name suggests. Overall, it looks like umbrella arches stacked over each other.

The Parasol Lace Stitch Pattern creates a delicate lace design over a background of stockinette stitches. You can design multiple repeats of the pattern, just make sure that there are a few stitches between each repeat of the panel, otherwise, it will not work. It is certainly a creative way to add some delicate textured details and contrast over standard knitting patterns.

You can use the free Parasol Lace knitting pattern to make the front panel of a pullover. You can create repeats of the vertical parasols all over or simply make a single vertical parasol panel in the center. Along with pullovers and sweaters, this delicate lace knitting pattern also looks good on baby sweaters, shawls, and scarves.
