Winter Lace Stitch is an all-over lace knitting pattern featuring an embossed diamond-shaped trellis network with eyelets along all the edges. The pattern looks somewhat similar to Fern Diamonds but with a lot more eyelets and texture. It creates a flexible and airy knitted fabric that is not reversible. Winter Lace is a beginner-friendly knitting pattern that can be knitted using any yarn weight.
You can use this gorgeous knitting pattern in a wide range of projects, such as dishcloths, stoles, and afghans. As it is a lace pattern, it is better to add a few garter stitches on the edges to prevent the curling of the knitted fabric.
