Day 14 : Arrowhead Lace Knit Stitch : #21daysoflaceknitstitches

Swatch of the Arrowhead Lace Knit Stitch
Welcome to Day 14 of the 21 Days of Lace Knit Stitches Series! Learn how to knit this lace knit stitch in the video tutorial below. I learned a couple of new techniques in today’s stitch.
We’ll be using a couple of different types of increases and decreases. This one will keep you on your toes. :)

Materials:

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

Video Tutorial:

Pattern, Knit Flat:

  • CO in multiples of 9+1 STS
  • Row 1{RS}: K3 *K2TOG, 00, SKP, K5* last 7 STS K2TOG, 00, SKP, K3
  • Row 2{WS}: K1, P3 *KP, P3, K1, P3* last 6 STS KP, P3, K1
  • Row 3{RS}: K2 *K2TOG, YO, K2, YO, SKP, K3* last 8 STS K2TOG, YO, K2, YO, SKP, K2
  • Row 4{WS}: *K1, P8* K1
  • Row 5{RS}: K1 *K2TOG, YO, K4, YO, SKP, K1*
  • Row 6{WS}: *K1, P8* K1 {SAME AS 4}
  • Row 7{RS}: K2TOG *00, K3TOG, 00, K3TOG TBL, 00, SK2PO* last 8 STS 00, K3TOG, 00, K3TOG TBL, 00, SKP
  • Row 8{WS}: K1 *KP, K1*
  • Repeat rows 1-8 until desired length.

Tip:

It curls a little bit on the edges, but not much. I think it would help to have a border around it to give it more structure.
Increase and decrease on the same row, so the stitch count is the same on all rows.
I would definitely block this stitch to bring out the diamonds and lace.
