Curvy Eyelet Lace Knit Stitch

Learn how to knit this beautiful curvy eyelet lace knit stitch which includes written instructions & a step-by-step VIDEO tutorial below!


Materials:

Yarn Weight: Super Bulky
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick
Needle Size: US 13 {9mm} Knitting Needles
Extras: Cable Needle


Notes:

All rows have the same number of increases & decreases, so you’ll always have the same number of stitches at the beginning and end of every row.


Gauge:

I chose a super bulky yarn because it’s easier to see the stitch definition in the photos and it’s easier to see what I’m doing in the video, however, you can use most any yarn you have in your stash!

Grab whatever yarn is calling to you and the recommended needle size on the label. I recommend using the “Goldilocks” test method, meaning you want to try different needle sizes and choose the needles that give you a stitch that’s not too loose or too tight, the one in the middle that’s just right. :)

Border:

This stitch would look nice with a garter stitch border, something simple to really let the lace shine and be the focal point.


Blocking:

I didn’t block my swatch, however I think this stitch would benefit from a light blocking. I personally like steam blocking I use a steamer similar to this one at Amazon that I picked up at the dollar store and it works perfectly!

    Absolutely beautiful stitch! I’d love to see a tank top or a bralette because I live in Southern California where it can get up to almost 120° in the summer.

      Isn’t it though! I really want to see it in a thinner yarn. Oh my, 120 is soo hot! I have some Pima cotton yarn that might make for a cooler top. :) I’m super excited to get started on it. We’re in a tornado watch for the night and I don’t think I can do math right now. It’s spring time in KS.
