Day 13 : Diamonds & Knots Lace Knit Stitch : #21daysoflaceknitstitches

Knitted swatch of the Diamonds & Knots Lace Knit Stitch
Welcome to Day 13 of the 21 Days of Lace Knit Stitches Series! Learn how to knit this diamonds & knots lace knit stitch in the video tutorial below. If you like bobbles, you’re gonna like this stitch!
This was a new type of bobble stitch for me. It’s not big like a normal bobble stitch and it’s not small like a popcorn stitch, it’s somewhere in the middle. I think this knot stitch is easier to create than a bobble too. Bonus!

Materials:

  • Size US 13 {9mm} Knitting Needles
  • Yarn: Lana Grande by Cascade Yarns

Tip:

This stitch curls a little bit, so a border would work best for this stitch.

I’m very happy with the stitch, however I think it would look even better blocked.

Increase and decrease on the same row, so the stitch count is the same on all rows.
